Foodbank fights hunger by sourcing food for people in need across Australia.
In the first seven months of this year, Ingham’s has donated 277,500 kilograms of product to Foodbank, which has gone towards making up 500,000 meals for people across Australia.
Ingham’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Jim Leighton, said: “Foodbank plays a major role, especially during times of crises, by gathering food donations and distributing them for people in need to turn into wholesome, nourishing meals. Ingham’s is proud to be able to help out the community with our product donations.”
Foodbank is a not-for-profit organisation that provides 77 million meals a year via a network of more than 2,400 frontline charities and 3,000 schools, and provides the equivalent of 210,000 meals a day.
Ingham’s has donated to Foodbank since 2012 and ensures that food waste is reduced by making all efforts to redirect perfectly edible food products to those who need it.
Sadly, 815,000 people a month seek food relief in Australia. Did you know that every $1 you donate to Foodbank would provide another two meals for Australians in need? To find out more about Foodbank and to support our partner in the community please visit their website.
