Foodbank Desperate for Support


Foodbank is a food relief organisation in Australia, and sources food and groceries from farmers, manufacturers and retailers to distribute them to front line charities and schools around the country to provide to individuals, children and families in need.

Since lockdown commenced in NSW, Foodbank has had a greater call on their services than ever before. The organisation explained that, “The stress of yet another lock down impacts us all, but for tens of thousands of people in NSW right now the brutal reality of no pay cheques, no money to buy basics to feed themselves or their families will be devastating. Unfortunately for so many already doing it tough, this could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.”

Foodbank’s warehouse is remaining open throughout this crisis to prepare emergency hampers filled with pantry staples to feed people who would otherwise go without food.

The organisation is asking for the following donations:

  • $35 to provide a hamper of essentials to a person in need
  • $70 to provide a hamper for a family
  • $140 to get critical supplies to communities in need.
