National Milk Program

Sadly, even affording milk can be a struggle for many families and individuals who have fallen on tough times. To help them have one less thing to worry about, we developed a vital and industry-leading collaboration with Australia’s largest dairy companies, which supply us with over 900,000 litres of fresh milk annually. We are very grateful for this ongoing industry-wide support.

How the National Milk Program works

The program currently operates via a supply arrangement with the milk partners supplying to a set Foodbank state on a weekly or fortnightly basis. That milk is then made available to our network of charity partners and school breakfast programs that have been audited and satisfy industry cold chain standards.

Can you help?


You can join our fresh milk program if you’re involved in the milk supply chain. We will love to hear from you.

To discuss how your farm, team, organisation or industry group can get involved or support the existing milk program please contact Tayla Field, Foodbank, National Program Manager – Fresh.
