Does Queensland have a hunger problem?
Hunger is a big problem in Queensland. Many people are pretending that everything is fine – they don’t want anyone to know that they’re struggling to put food on the table for their families. But hunger is affecting thousands of children and hardworking mums and dads in Queensland. Not having enough food for yourself or your family is not something that people want to broadcast or even share with their friends. That’s why you don’t hear much about it – it’s a silent crisis. Foodbank works with farmers and retailers to source fresh food and grocery items for those in need every week.
What food does Foodbank provide?
We source and rescue a mix of fresh vegetables and fruits, long-life pantry essentials (like rice, pasta, flour, long life milk, tinned produce and meal bases) and short-life essentials like bread, milk, meat, cheese and yoghurt. The average food donation we source could fill your lounge room with food!

Meet Mitch and his family, who are courageously facing a daily battle amid the cost of living crisis. His story sheds light on the stark reality that so many Queensland families are enduring, silently struggling to put food on the table.
After years of trauma, Melissa was going hungry.
After enduring years of domestic violence, while fighting to keep her family together, Melissa was left with a devastating brain injury. With no means of income and only a small disability pension, it was often only enough to pay for her therapy and medications.
Floods left Andrea with no home or food for her children.
When devastating floods hit her hometown Andrea and her children lost everything - the family home was destroyed, and all their food and belongings were ruined. As a young single mum, Andrea didn’t know how she would feed her children.
