Food Relief aims to increase emergency relief organisations’ access to a cost-effective supply of food items.
Organisations are funded to ensure food items are available for service providers to deliver to individuals and families in need across Australia by:
- receiving donated foods from farmers/manufacturers/retailers/other food redistribution services, and redistributing these foods to community organisations or other distribution centres where the food is needed
- sourcing and transporting essential foods on a basis where food donations are insufficient
- leading the development of local partnerships amongst food redistribution suppliers to improve access and distribution, especially in rural and remote communities.
