What is Foodbank?

Foodbank is by far the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia – last year alone we provided enough food for 25 million meals.

Foodbank is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation which acts as a pantry to the charities who feed the hungry. It was first established in 1992 in NSW and now has a presence in every state and the Northern Territory with distribution centres in all state capitals and major regional areas. We operate with a staff of approximately 70 employees and over 2,000 volunteers.

Foodbank is a conduit between the food industry’s surplus food and the welfare sector’s need. Find out more about how we work.
