We’re proud to be the major sponsor of the Hunger Ride, a cycling event run by Foodbank Victoria that raises much-needed funds to provide vulnerable Victorians with emergency food relief. In March 2022 the ride raised over $150,000, and we’re now preparing for the next ride from 18-20 November.
About the Hunger Ride
Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, working with manufacturers, farmers and retailers to source and rescue food to distribute to a network of hundreds of charity partners. It currently provides 70% of the food delivered by charities across Australia.
Many people are reeling from the economic impacts of higher costs of living and inflation, and finding themselves in situations they never anticipated, unable to put food on the table. Foodbank Victoria alone is currently providing meals to feed a staggering 50,000 people per day.
You can help. Every dollar donated is two meals created, allowing Foodbank to continue its critical work of delivering food packages to frontline charities for delivery to vulnerable Victorians.
The Hunger Ride podcast
Earlier this year, well-known cycling commentator Matt Keenan spoke to Dave McNamara (CEO of Foodbank Victoria) and Craig Bingham (CEO of Bennelong Funds Management) about Foodbank’s mission, the sobering increase in need over the past two years, and how the Hunger Ride is helping to feed vulnerable Victorians.
