Bushfire Emergency

Foodbank is playing a crucial role in the current unprecedented bushfire crisis which is devastating communities across the country.

As a trusted organisation forming part of the official emergency response network, Foodbank is acting a conduit for the generosity of the food and grocery sector and the general public who are keen to assist with essential supplies to stricken areas. Foodbank is delivering exactly what is needed, when and where it’s needed in order to efficiently and effectively support the relief efforts.

Our work is dependent on people like you. Here’s how you can help:

Donate funds

For every $1 you donate, we are able to provide $2 meals to affected communities thanks to our partnership with the food and grocery sector.
