2021 Feed Appeal
Feeding hope, one meal at a time
The funds raised through this years Feed Appeal will help provide capacity building grants for community food relief charities that have been struggling to meet the increased demand for food relief across the country. Community food charities have seen an increase of more than 47% with many new faces and people reaching out for support for the first time in their lives since the wave of natural disasters and the global pandemic hit.
Feed Appeal is also supporting our founding partner FareShare, Australia’s largest charity kitchens to cook more of their healthy, nutritious and free meals to stock the fridges and freezers of community food relief charities who have received grants in the past and enable them to feed more people.
Our goal this year is to raise enough to provide at least 3 million meals.

FEED APPEAL IN ACTION
See our impact in your community
There were times when ADRA Pine Rivers had to refuse much-needed fresh food donations, simply because they couldn’t store them. But a $14,700 Feed Appeal grant will enable the Dakabin charity to change that. “This generous Feed Appeal grant for a new cool room will go a long way to continue the sustainability of ADRA Pine Rivers in the storage and delivery of fresh food supplies to those in the community who are doing it tough,” ADRA South Queensland regional director Irena Pule said.
Thanks to a $50,000 Feed Appeal grant, Tangentyere Council – an Aboriginal-controlled community organisation – will be able to buy a refrigerated van to transport fresh and frozen food to up to 250 households a week in Alice Springs Town Camps. “Tangentyere Council is proud to work with Feed Appeal to support Alice Springs Town Camp households and strengthen food security in our region,” executive officer Anna Flouris said
A $19,000 Feed Appeal grant will enable Gateway Community Care to put twice as many meals on the table for Tasmanians in need.
The Devonport charity will be able to buy a new commercial oven for its Heaven’s Kitchen community meals program.
“This is such a blessing. We will have the capacity to double our production of meals to support our community, “ program co-ordinator Cheryl Jones said.
A $50 000 grant will pay for a kitchen renovation enabling the Exodus Foundation to double the amount of meals – from 20,000 to 40,000 – it produces for struggling Sydneysiders. “The increase in size and capacity will enable us to expand our existing set-up and means we can explore other options when it comes to food delivery via our mobile food vans,” director Rev. Bill Crews said.
Hunger is a community issue that needs a community solution. Together we can help those who are struggling to afford a meal.

“The Feed Appeal grant will enable us to handle up to 6 additional pallets of food (3 tonnes) each week – enough to feed an additional 1500 disadvantaged families. The new cool room will provide a significant long term and ongoing community resource for the greater Ipswich community.”

“Thank you, Feed Appeal, for your generous grant. Grainery Care has experienced a huge surge in the need to provide healthy, sustainably sourced food during the Covid19 pandemic.
