Foodbank is the pantry to Australia’s charity sector, providing food and grocery items to 2,600 charitable organisations who run food relief programs. Pre-COVID-19, these programs assisted more than 815,000 Australians each and every month. We have seen a 47% increase in demand for food relief since the pandemic was declared.

Through our wonderful charity partners in Victoria, we’re able to provide 1.2 million meals a month to Victorians in need. People like Mandy, who has struggled to find work to provide for her family due to ongoing health issues. And Deb, a loving Grandmother who’s cancer diagnosis has put her in a position where she struggles to access a steady income.
The reality is, food insecurity is a crisis affecting 1 in 5 people in Australia each year.
