Foodbank Australia

Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities who are feeding vulnerable Australians. Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food rescued for food relief organisations nation-wide. At Foodbank we believe everyone should have access to good quality food. We’re here for the everyday Australians who are going without. And it’s our job to help change that. We work with 2,950 frontline charities and 2,890 school breakfast programs to get over 87.9 million meals out to those who could use a hand every year. One in six adults in Australia haven’t had enough to eat in the last year, and 1.2 million children have gone hungry. Foodbank provides food relief to more than a million people each month.

Foodbank is a not-for-profit, non-denominational, federated organisation operating in every state and territory in Australia. Foodbank Australia is the only Australian food relief organisation that is a certified member of The Global Foodbanking Network (GFN), comprised of 32 member countries, 19 of which are accredited. Food insecurity is a big problem, requiring a big coordinated response, and we rely on countless partners to do what we do. Our national and state-based teams work with the entire food and grocery industry including farmers, wholesalers, manufacturers and retailers to source food and capture donations. We also collaborate with suppliers, manufacturers and transporters to produce key staple foods that don’t come in sufficient quantities via rescue channels. To distribute the food, our state teams work with an army of volunteers to pick, pack and get the food to where it’s needed.
