Help in difficult times
At some point each year, over 4 million Australians are in crisis, dealing with the anguish and despair of not knowing where their next meal is coming for themselves and their families. It’s hard to believe this happens in the ‘lucky country’. It's a predicament largely hidden by stigma and shame, but the reality is it's not just people 'on the street', but people in your street.
Foodbank restores hope to people who are struggling, by rescuing and sourcing food from farmers, manufacturers and retailers, and distributing it through front line charities around the country to people in need.
As the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia, Foodbank has the scale and capacity to address the country’s hunger crisis. In spite of our best efforts, however, only 36% charities are currently meeting people’s needs because demand is outstripping supply. This is why, with your help, we can feed more people each day.
