"With 4 million Australians suffering from food poverty at some point in the last 12 months and charities reporting increased demand for food relief, we are grateful for our generous national donors, partners and supporters, like Zambrero, that help supply food and grocery relief to the 2,600 charities around Australia which work to feed the hungry."
Brianna Casey, 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 Foodbank provides relief to over 710,000 Australians every month.*
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, sauces or packets of black rice and Zambrero will provide on meal to Foodbank for a hungry Australian.
Zambrero donates a Foodbank breakfast of cereal and milk for every muesli bar 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.
