Foodbank Australia announced that it sourced a record 51 million kilograms of food and groceries in 2023, equivalent to 92 million meals. This comes at a crucial time when the cost-of-living crisis has significantly increased the demand for food relief across the nation.

The Foodbank Hunger Report 2023 illustrates a somber reality, with 3.7 million households in Australia experiencing food insecurity last year. This surge in insecurity, driven by rising living costs, emphasises the urgent need for support and intervention.

Foodbank gratefully accepts donations of various kinds, including ambient, chilled, and fresh food, as well as personal and household care items. Through partnerships with farmers, wholesalers, manufacturers, and retailers, surplus stock is redirected to Foodbank’s charity network, ensuring essential resources reach those most in need.

Foodbank Australia’s CEO, Brianna Casey, has called for government intervention to address the root causes of food insecurity. The National Retail Association echoes this sentiment, recognising the importance of immediate relief measures and increased funding for the food relief sector.
