Foodbank Australian: End Hunger Report 2012

Some two million Australians do not have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life. These include members of low income families, the unemployed, single parent families, the homeless/those in special accommodation, young Australians, the elderly, those with substance abuse problems, indigenous Australians, and asylum seekers and refugees.

In the 12 months to December 2011 the number of welfare agencies seeking food from Foodbank, Australia’s largest hunger relief charity, increased by 12%, with the volume of food and grocery items made available by Food bank increasing by 23%. Foods in most demand were basics: milk, breakfast cereal, bread, tea and coffee, shelf-stable fruit and vegetables, pasta and noodles.

Foodbank’s 2012 End Hunger Report is based on analysis provided by Access Economics’ Macroeconomic Policy & Forecasting practice. It presents the results of a survey of welfare agencies sourcing food from Foodbank undertaken in 2011, and highlights the food needs of those agencies in addressing food insecurity among individuals and families in Australia.

Deloitte Access Economics is proud to have provided the analysis to assist in the production of this report.
