Project Report | Oct 22, 2021
Foodbank Hunger Report 2021

By Sindy Dupagunta | Partnerships Executive

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for your support of Foodbank. Here is a quick update on the Foodbank Hunger Report 2021.

Foodbank has now released its annual Hunger Report. It provides a snapshot of the prevalence and depth of hunger in Australia as well as insights into the day-to-day experience of people in our community who are doing it tough.

Alarmingly, the report shows that one in six Australian adults haven’t had enough to eat in the last year and, even more shockingly, 1.2 million children have gone hungry. Additionally, more than half of people impacted by severe food insecurity go a whole day every week without eating. Foodbank is now providing food relief to more than a million people each month.

The report, now in its 10th year, highlights that the pandemic continues to deliver challenges that are exacerbating pre-existing challenges in our communities. In addition to those who were already struggling before COVID-19, the pandemic has caused others to experience vulnerability for the first time. In fact, more than one in three of last year’s food insecure Australians (38%) had never been in that position before. 

Moreover, the report highlights that food insecurity is not restricted to the ‘obvious’ vulnerability groups such as homeless people and the unemployed. It shows people of every age, living alone, in families and in groups are susceptible. Food insecurity is shown to affect people in cities right through to those in remote areas and surprisingly, hunger affects more people in some form of employment (64%) than those who have none. 

Despite our best efforts, there are many Australians who still do not have access to the food relief they require.

Once again, on behalf of the Foodbank family, thank you so much for supporting those who are experiencing hunger.

Warm Regards,

Foodbank Australia
