Foodbank Desperate for Support

Foodbank Australia is asking for your help to meet the needs of people doing it tough during the extended lockdown.

Foodbank, a food relief organisation in Australia, 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.

A spokesperson for the organisation said that the stress of yet another lockdown had impacted us all.

“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,” the spokesperson said “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.
