Foodbank NSW & ACT Board of Directors

“I saw what a real difference Foodbank makes to so many”
During my time at Nestle Australia – a long-time supporter of Foodbank – I saw what a real difference Foodbank makes to so many lives. And I could see genuine passion from within the
organisation to give struggling Aussies a hand up, not just a handout. Our School Breakfast 4 Health program has made a great start in ensuring our kids are at school with a full stomach. We all know the link between healthy kids and improved education outcomes
and I’d love to see every school in NSW and the ACT run this program, supported by us.

“I want to help Foodbank make an even bigger impact”
I love that Foodbank is the backbone supporting hundreds of welfare charities, serving people who are doing it tough in our own backyard and helping people to get back on their feet. I want to help Foodbank make an even bigger impact by sharing my knowledge and experience.

“I was shocked at the poverty in our ‘lucky’ country”
I produce food for a living and it still makes me so angry when I see it wasted. I love the thought of reducing waste or putting it to good use. When I got involved in Foodbank, I was shocked at the poverty in our ‘lucky’ country and felt I had to do something.

“I wanted the opportunity to give something back”
As a father of three boys I couldn’t conceive of sending them to school hungry, yet that is the fact for so many families. I was shocked at the extent of the issue of hunger, so when I retired from a full time executive role, I wanted the opportunity to give something back.

“I want to share insights from working on the frontline”
I was invited to join the Board to represent the views of community agencies who partner with Foodbank. I want to share insights from working on the frontline, fighting poverty and injustice. Foodbank is not only keeping people from being hungry, it is improving the food quality and nutrition, disadvantaged families and individuals have access to.

“I believe Foodbank makes a real difference to those in need”
As a child, my father and I made a number of visits over the years to the homes of people in desperate need for help through Dad’s role with St Vincent de Paul and the Catholic Church. The opportunity to be part of Foodbank enables me to continue that community work and know that we are genuinely helping those who need help in a meaningful way.

“I was taught that food should never be wasted”
I grew up with European parents who had both experienced real, prolonged hunger and not knowing where the next meal was coming from during WWII. As a result, I was taught that food should never be wasted and that the availability of food should never be taken for granted.
