Foodbank Produce

Fact: People are starving in Australia.

The words ‘hunger’ and ‘Australia’ aren’t often associated as this is a hidden social issue of which many victims face in silence. Did you know that over two million people (including children) living in Australia rely on food relief each year?
“The current economic climate means people are turning to charity who would never have dreamed of seeking such support in the past. So it’s not just traditionally vulnerable groups such as the homeless seeking food relief, but also the aged, single parents and the working poor.” – Foodbank WA.
Industry research indicates an increase of people requiring food assistance across the country but due to lack of resources and food, almost 60, 000 Australians seeking food relief each month are turned away.

Foodbank is the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia, which provided over 40 million meals in 2014 alone.
