With the increase cost of living and housing in Australia, 3.6 million Australians don’t knowing where their next meal is coming from at some point during the year. This means that we’re likely to know someone who is affected, because it’s not just people on the street but people in your street.

Despite being the largest food relief organisation in Australia, over 19,000 people are being turned away from local charities every month because the demand outweighs supply.

Hearing the real stories from families and individuals receiving food assistance from Foodbank, truly is the best way to understand the immediate and long-term impact Foodbank has on those facing difficult times.

We also like to share stories from our sponsors, supporters, volunteers, staff and corporate partners, who help us fight hunger through their generosity and commitment to our cause.
