Celebrating 25+1 year of community service 1995 - 2021

Celebrating 25+1 year of community service 1995 - 2021
Did you know that hunger is a hidden crisis in Australia? There are over 2 million people seeking food relief at some point every year, half of which are children. In fact, the demand for food relief is rising - irrespective of national economic growth - and it's not just the homeless and unemployed who go without food, it's also the working poor and elderly.

Here at JobCo, we understand that many of our clients experience financial hardship and - keeping in line with our values - we aim to provide our clients with assistance wherever necessary. This is why JobCo. has partnered with Australia's leading not-for-profit hunger relief organisation, Foodbank Victoria.

Having a food bank service means we can help people address their immediate basic needs in times of crisis. Food relief can act as a safety net for people experiencing economic distress or hardship, and have limited means or resources to help them alleviate their financial crisis.

Personal testimonies from our participants who have benefited from our Food bank service

"My entire payment with rent assistance is $340 per week and my rent is $370 per week. My mum and best friend have been feeding me, which is rather humiliating.... The food package from Food Bank was really helpful. Thank you".

"Just wanted to say thank you so much. I've now got a full belly.... You got me out of a tight squeeze. What can I say other than thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you".

Foodbank Victoria

Foodbank Victoria is an independent not-for-profit organisation with almost 90 years experience providing food relief. We are the largest provider of food relief in Victoria, including in times of disaster as part of the State Relief and Recovery Team. Our vision is healthy food for all Victorians, yet 1 in 7 people struggle to afford food and 1 in 7 children go to school hungry. To ensure we can reach as many people as possible, we work with food donors across the supply chain to source edible food from farmers, manufacturers and retailers. Food is then distributed to our network of 450 charity partners around the state, helping to feed more than 100,000 Victorians every month.
