Skip a skinny cap, feed a skinny child

In these economically harsh times, there is an unseen problem in Australia. It is the inability of the “working poor” to provide family members with 3 meals a day. Of the total food relief delivered by welfare agencies, 80% is going to families.*

Australia also has many people for whom the cost of the next meal is never a consideration. For the top echelon, a watch, handbag or coat can cost more than the annual income of an impoverished household.

However, all individuals and companies can do something to help, whether through corporate support, corporate volunteering, workplace giving or ad hoc donations. Recently, Foodbank Australia implemented a regular donation scheme, whereby average Australians can provide measurable assistance for just a few dollars a month.

Foodbank Australia is the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia. A non-denominational, non-profit organisation, it acts as a pantry to the charities and community groups feeding Australia’s hungry. Last year Foodbank Australia (through its branches in all mainland states and territories), provided sufficient food for 32 million meals.

Based on a monthly donation, Foodbank has identified targets and evaluated a donation to achieve them.

  • For less than the price of a capuccino a week, 100 kids can be served milk and cereal for breakfast at home, to give them a chance to concentrate in class and improve their opportunities
  • For $35 a month, one person can be provided with three meals a day for a whole month
  • One hundred dollars a month can provide a nourishing meal for 1,000 people
  • A donation of $136 a month will provide a child with a nutritious breakfast for an entire year!

All donations are used exclusively to fund food sourcing and hunger relief activities, not to cover administration costs.

I am very happy with my new website from Digital Tsunami.

Not only did they design it, they also created my logo, and gave me valuable advice and professional feedback.

Through Digital Tsunami, my website now looks professional, easy to navigate and (through my customised CMS), easy to update.
