Last week alone, it broke my heart to see an unbelievable 50% increase in demand for food relief - I desperately need your help to do something about it.
Before this crisis even hit, Foodbank was already feeding 140,153 people in Victoria – including 28,000 children – who were in need of urgent hunger relief each month. Sadly, an extra almost 8,000 people here in Victoria were already missing out each month as we just cannot meet the demand.
It distresses me greatly that thousands of individuals and families across Victoria are going without. And all because it costs money to source our food – and we just don’t have enough.
Your urgent donation today will help provide hampers of basic staples to vulnerable families impacted by this crisis – families who are now forced to do it even tougher!
- $35 can help provide Emergency Food Hampers filled with enough staple foods to sustain elderly and isolated Victorians.
- $60 can help provide Family Food Hampers filled with enough staple foods like pasta, rice and canned vegetables to feed struggling families.
- $120 will help provide Pantry Food Hampers filled with enough staple foods to keep hungry families going through the worst of this crisis.
At times like this, we stand together, as Victorians. We support the weak and the vulnerable, because that’s who we are.
