Hunger Crisis in the Country

Foodbank, the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia, has released the Foodbank Hunger Report 2018 as part of Anti-poverty Week.

The report highlights the growing crisis of food insecurity in Australia particularly in the country where people are 33% more likely to experience food insecurity than people living in the city.

More than 4 million Australians have experienced food insecurity over the past year, with 22% of these being children.

What is food insecurity?

Food insecurity defines a spectrum of circumstances that ranges from occasional anxiety over accessing food to going without food altogether.

Food insecurity is defined as ‘a situation that exists when people lack secure access to sufficient amounts of safe and nutritious food for normal growth and development and an active and healthy life.’

How can you help Foodbank tackle this problem?
