Foodbank South Australia - Helping the Fight Against Hunger

by Jodi (follow)
Each month, approximately 85,000 South Australians experience food insecurity with one third of them being children.

The prices of essentials like food, health, education, housing, utilities and transport have climbed so much in recent years that people who are already struggling are susceptible to sudden bill shock and financial disadvantage.

85,000 people seek food relief services in South Australia every month.
One third of them are children.
49% of welfare agencies reported a growth in demand for food relief services.
26% is the amount of food required to meet demand.

Established in South Australia in 2000, Foodbank South Australia’s core concept remains simple – to feed those in need by redistributing surplus food.

Food growers, manufacturers and processors produce quantities of food which, for various commercial reasons, cannot be sold. The products may be incorrectly labelled, have faulty packaging, be part of a trial run or are not produced to exact specifications.

It is estimated that as much as 30% of all food produced is unsaleable for a variety of reasons.

Foodbank SA delivers breakfast foods to schools FREE of charge in all regions of SA, and also provides food to other charities for their breakfast programs.
