Foodbank NSW & ACT Ltd
- National Reach
Most Australians don’t realise that two million Australians, half of whom are children need food relief every year. At the same time 1 in 3 kilos of food produced in this country goes to waste. This is where Foodbank NSW & ACT bridges the gap.
Foodbank NSW & ACT is the largest food relief agency in NSW. We supply 95% of food relief in the state to both metropolitan and regional NSW. Foodbank NSW & ACT rescues 5 million kilos of food destined to be dumped (including 1 million kilos of fresh fruit and veg) and turns it into 6.6 million meals a year for the elderly, children, low-income families and many, many more struggling Australians. The food we rescue goes out to over 560 charities including the Salvation Army, Mission Australia and St Vincent De Pauls and many smaller charities. The need for our service has never been greater. 85% of the charities we supply report running out of food and having to turn hungry Australians away.
