The need

Many people are reeling from the economic impacts and disruption of COVID-19 and finding themselves in situations they never anticipated, unable to put food on the table.

The latest Foodbank Hunger Report provides a sobering snapshot of food insecurity in Australia.

  • One in six adults in Australia haven’t had enough to eat in the past year
  • 1.2 million children have gone hungry in the past year
  • One in three people struggling to meet their food needs are new to the situation
  • Two in five people seeking food relief do not get enough for their household’s needs
  • More than half of those impacted by severe food insecurity go a whole day each week without eating
