Food Bank Shop and Share Campaign

Imagine having to pick whether to eat or pay a bill? Unfortunately, that is the bleak reality for 84,000 Australian’s who are in search of assistance for food relief in NSW.

Nic Healey spoke to the CEO of Food Bank, Brianna Casey this morning.

Casey notes that the amount of food wastage compared to the rates of food insecurity is, in her words, “shameful”.

Last year, Food Bank raised enough funds to provide 13 million meals for Australians in need. It is anticipated that donations this year could be the equivalent of filling around three and a half thousand shopping trolleys.
