LPG making a difference with Foodbank Australia

08/02/2022

LPG are proud to partner with Australia’s leading food and grocery relief organisation, Foodbank Australia. Foodbank provides essential assistance to a million Australians every month who are experiencing food insecurity.

Last year, LPG donated 415,700 meals to people experiencing hardship. Through our partnership, we are able to help people when they need it most.

Since COVID-19, the demand for food relief has risen, impacting new demographics. Did you know 60% of food insecure Australians have a job? Food insecurity affects more people in jobs than those who have no work. Or that 1.2 million children are living in food-insecure households? More than half (57%) of food insecure Australians go a whole day without eating at least once a week.

Foodbank is addressing this crisis by partnering with organisations such as LPG, to assist in supplying more food and groceries than ever before to charities for distribution to vulnerable people. Foodbank restores hope to people who are struggling while also tackling Australia’s $36.6 billion food waste problem.

LPG’s also supports the foodbank breakfast program, which helps children at school by providing breakfasts to 2,890 schools nationally.

We look forward to further supporting Foodbank in 2022.
