Foodbank keen to hear from growers

If you’ve got fruit that doesn’t quite hit the mark for your normal retail avenues, or are looking for a great way to give back to the wider community, consider directing your perfectly edible fruit to Foodbank Australia to help feed hungry Aussies.

The Foodbank Hunger Report 2018 highlighted more than four million Australians have experienced food insecurity in the past 12 months. Foodbank provides food relief to over 710,000 Australians every month, but only 36% of charities are currently meeting the full needs of the people they assist – many in regional or rural areas.

Demand truly outweighs supply with the team always in need of donations, and tasty and nutritious bananas are very welcome.

While Foodbank currently has active banana sourcing programs in Queensland and NSW, the team are keen to ensure they can deliver fruit right across the country. If you’d like to discuss donating, on any scale, contact National Program Manager Jacqui Payne Modern airbag fleet specialising in bananas
