A message from our CEO, John Robertson

Welcome to the latest edition of Feeding Hope


It warms my heart to know that people like you made it possible to stock and run 11 fresh produce pop-ups across the flood-affected regions of NSW. Thank you.

We are in the midst of a hunger crisis. Inflation and the rising cost of living is putting enormous pressure on people like Jade, who was so worried about being able to provide for her family at Christmas. Thanks to you, I am pleased to report Jade had a full table – and full heart – on Christmas day. You’ll read more about her special day enclosed.

The 2022 Foodbank Hunger Report confirmed that over two million Australian households have experienced severe food insecurity just in the last 12 months.

There is so much more work to do. We need to be prepared – and stay prepared. And what we need most of all, is you onboard to make that possible.

– John Robertson, CEO, Foodbank NSW & ACT
