"In Australia we subscribe to the belief of a fair go for all and, at Foodbank, we think that means everyone having enough to eat. It’s time to put the growing food security problem on the national agenda and commit to ensuring there is food for all. We’re grateful to Zambrero for joining the fight against hunger in our own backyard."
Geoff Starr, CEO Foodbank Australia
When Zambrero became aware of the alarming number of people going hungry right here in Australia we knew we had to do something about it. Currently 1 in 6 Australians report having experienced food insecurity in the last 12 months *
That's why in June 2014, we extended our Plate 4 Plate initiative to support Foodbank, Australia’s largest food relief organisation, through the introduction of a range of Grab & Go products.
Simply buy one of our delicious muesli bars, brownies, packets of black rice of a jar of our Zambrero sauce and you’re funding breakfast, lunch or dinner for a hungry Australian.
Zambrero donates a Foodbank breakfast of cereal and milk for every muesli bar or jar of Zambrero sauce we sell. While a donation of a Foodbank meal of rice and beans is provided for every packet of black rice or brownie we sell.
How else is Foodbank fighting hunger in Australia?
Foodbank assists 644,000 Australians with food relief every month through activities such as packing and distributing food parcels. They work with over 700 partners, including farmers, wholesalers, manufacturers and retailers, who contribute surplus and donated food and groceries for redistribution. Last year alone Foodbank collected 33 million kilos of food destined to be dumped and turned it into 60 million meals.
