Feed the world
Posted on : 14 September 2017
Foodbank is like a kitchen pantry for Australians in need. Foodbank collects surplus food and groceries from farmers, manufacturers and retailers and passes it on to charities and community groups who feed the hungry. It accepts product that is out of specification, close to date code, has incorrect labelling or damaged packaging as well as excess stock and deleted lines. Without Foodbank much of this food would go to landfill.
The Royal Agricultural Society was proud to donate over 1000kg, or 1 tonne, of beef & lamb, deli meats, pasta and other medal-worthy foodstuffs to Foodbank at the completion of each day’s judging of the Sydney Royal Fine Food Shows.
The food rescued by Foodbank provides on average 166,000 meals a day.
