1 in 3 parents living in food insecure households disclosed that their children go hungry at least once a month.
In addition, at least once a week, 18% of children from food insecure households go to school without eating breakfast, 15% go to school without a packed lunch or lunch money and 11% go to bed without eating any dinner.
Working together with farmers, food and grocery manufacturers, retailers and thousands of charities and schools, Foodbank sources and supplies 1.2 million meals each and every week for Australian families and individuals in their time of need.
However, with 65,000 people still turned away from our charity partners each month, because there simply isn’t enough food, we urgently need your help.
Help us end child hunger in Australia.
