Dear Friends,

I am eternally grateful for the support that Foodbank receives every single day. Our very generous supporters, committed volunteers and dedicated staff come together as a collective to make amazing things happen. The end result is food on plates and full stomachs.

Any CEO will tell you that you’re only as good as those around you and I’m fortunate to be surrounded with determined, compassionate people that give everything they have to help those that have so little. We’ve all heard the stories about unemployment, rental stress and the ever-increasing cost of living. Just some of the factors that can lead to food insecurity.

Nationally Foodbank provides over 63 million meals a year but with 1 in 6 people experiencing food insecurity in the last 12 months there is still much to do. So, I urge you to keep supporting Foodbank in as many ways as you can and never underestimate your part in our determination to eradicate hunger.


Gerry Andersen, CEO Foodbank NSW ACT


Warmest Regards,

Gerry Andersen
