Foodbank

Arnott's Biscuits has been a proud supporter of Foodbank Australia for more than 10 years.

To ensure we make a real difference to the quality of life for all Australian families, the coordination of these donations is managed by The Arnott's Foundation.

In the world today we produce sufficient food to feed everyone. However one billion tonnes of food goes to waste while one billion people go hungry. And it’s not just a third world problem. It’s a sad fact that in our lucky country, which is a net exporter of food, there are many people who are struggling to eat.

Foodbank – the pantry of the welfare sector

One organisation which is working to help alleviate the plight of both urban and rural Australians is Foodbank.

Foodbank is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation which acts as a pantry to over 2,600 charities and community groups who provide food relief to the community.

Foodbank is a national organisation with distribution centres in all state capitals, the Northern Territory and ten regional centres including Bendigo, Dandenong, Mt Gambier, Whyalla, Riverland, Albany, Geraldton, Bunbury, Mandurah and Kalgoorlie. Its reach spreads even further a field via regional food hubs and other distribution mechanisms.

2013/14 Partnership highlights

  • Campbell Arnott’s donated 336,464 kilograms of food which equates to 448,600 meals.

  • A recent study has found that the food’s impact extends far beyond satisfying immediate hunger needs. In addition to environmental gains and reduced waste, the food addresses the nutritional and physical health needs of vulnerable people and contributes to improvements in their emotional wellbeing, sense of self-worth, social relationships, academic achievement and general standard of living.

  • The food donated by Campbell Arnott’s is forecast to deliver $7.74 million in social return on investment.
