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.

How the 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.
