What is Foodbank?

Home / About Us / What is Foodbank?

Foodbank is by far, the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia

Last year alone, we provided enough food for 32 million meals.

Foodbank is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation which acts as a pantry to the charities and community groups who feed the hungry. It was first established in 1992 in NSW and now has a presence in every state and the Northern Territory with distribution centres in all state capitals as well as a number of regional centres. We operate with a staff of approximately 90 employees and over 3,000 volunteers.

Foodbank is a conduit between the food industry’s surplus food and the welfare sector’s need. Find out more about how we work.
