PROVIDING PANTRY STAPLES
Each year, we need more pasta and cereal to help those doing it tough. The Foodbank Grain Program is essential for us to meet the increasing need, and we can’t do it without the farmers and partners who support us in any way they can.
The impact of this program is boosted through collaboration with our manufacturing partners, who donate the production time, and their ingredient suppliers who provide donations, discounts, or subsidies. This model means our programs are sustainable, efficient and impactful.
For every $1 invested, we can distribute $5 worth of food to people who would otherwise go without.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
The process of donating grain is simple and can have a significant impact on someone in need. For example, a donation of just half a tonne of grain provides more than 12,000 servings of cereal for people in need.
Anyone in the grain supply chain can make a difference by being involved in our grain program, from financial supporters, growers, traders, bulk handlers and millers, to packaging companies, manufacturers and transport providers. Grain growers anywhere in Australia can help with even the smallest grain donation of any type or any grade.
