2021 Feed Appeal

Feeding hope, one meal at a time

The 2021 Feed Appeal will provide almost four million meals for Aussies in need after raising a record $1.96 million.

The money raised will support Australia’s largest charity kitchen FareShare, which cooks rescued and donated food into delicious, nutritious meals for vulnerable Australians and delivers them free to hundreds of community charities across Australia. The meals are packed with protein and vegetables to boost the health and wellbeing of people doing it tough including the isolated and elderly, families fleeing domestic violence, people experiencing homelessness and the countless people who have lost their jobs and income through lockdowns. This year’s funding will also provide 29 community grants to frontline charities to help them grow, expand and deliver food relief programs in their local community. These grants will fund food transport vehicles, refrigeration, coolrooms, freezers, kitchen equipment and food staples for community foodbanks and hamper programs.

You can still support Australians in crisis. 

100% of your donation goes to providing meals for vulnerable Australians in their hour of need.  All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

FEED APPEAL IN ACTION 

See our impact in your community

Goondir Health Services in Dalby, Queensland, will be cooking up feasts for local community members and remote Indigenous communities after receiving a $50,000 grant to purchase a 40-tray combi oven. The new oven will help provide an extra 200 nutritious meals each week for those unable to access healthy food or cook for themselves.
With demand for food relief quadrupling during the pandemic, a $20,000 grant for a new coolroom will help We Care Community Services in Dandenong, Victoria, accept more fresh and frozen produce without risk of it spoiling or going to waste. “We’ll be giving families more choice and supporting the community on a much larger scale,” said general manager Alex Attard.
Hello Initiative in Perth, WA, is trialling a Children’s Court breakfast project to ensure young people in the youth justice system can have a decent feed before they attend the court. A $5000 grant for food staples will support the pilot program to provide young people and their families who are awaiting court appointments with a free breakfast of shelf-stable foods and fresh fruit.
There were times when St Vincent De Paul in Elizabeth, SA, had to throw away good food simply because it didn’t have adequate cold storage. But now a $43,000 grant will provide a walk-in freezer and coolroom to store all perishable food donations, prevent waste, and allow more food to be delivered through its Fred’s Van meal service.

The voice of our charity partners

“This funding will go towards a new truck for our food aid program so we can collect and distribute more food to support a community that is particularly susceptible to living in poverty. We are thrilled that we can now also accept the generous offers of donated foods that require refrigerated transport, including dairy, proteins, and pre-prepared meals.” – CEO Sri Samy from Friends of Refugees, Springvale, Victoria
“Our new cool room and forklift will make a massive difference in helping our amazing team of volunteers, provide the much-needed food to people who are disadvantaged and struggling to survive during these tough times.” – Pastor David Nahi from Vibe Care Ltd, Tweed Heads, NSW
“This equipment will enable our Harvest program to blossom. We take pride in providing restaurant quality food to homeless people and serving them as customers. The vacuum sealer, blast chiller and food processor will enable us to do this at a price that we currently can’t afford.” – Roby Curtis from Emmanuel City Mission, South Brisbane, Queensland.
“I see the joy on our customers faces when they are able to access low-priced meals, pantry items and fresh fruit and vegetables for their families. The new equipment from the Feed Appeal  will significantly increase the provision of meals to those in need.” – Randy Albrecht from Canberra City Care, Charnwood, ACT.
