Foodbank’s ability to supply foods that conform to our diet and nutrition policy has helped us enormously. Foodbank SA plays a significant role in ensuring the welfare sector can respond appropriately to the growing numbers of people needing help in SA.
Time for Kids
Manager, Children and Carer Services
We held an event earlier this year and were able to purchase all of the items through Foodbank; very minimal expense to us. It was a party for our Grandparents Support Network that included all of our grandparents who care for their grandchildren full-time, and they receive respite from our agency.
As a charity we use Foodbank at all of our events, and enjoy seeing the smiles on the faces of all of those who attend. The grandparents work very hard to support their grandchildren and we enjoy being able to give them time to feel special and have a break. Foodbank has helped us achieve this as we provide this group with much needed hampers throughout the year and at the events.

Foodbank SA completes a lifeline to the many families and individuals seeking emergency relief at our doorstep.
Without the supply of low-cost food from Foodbank SA, the growing number of people assisted by our service would go hungry.
Our weekly visit to Foodbank SA is a happy experience because we know that through the large and varied range of foodstuff available, these struggling people will receive some relief from financial and other crises in their lives, and their children will not go hungry for days on end.
Thank you Foodbank SA for your life-sustaining service to organisations who are at the front line of caring for people in need.

Foodbank provides a great service. We collect food for our CARA Camp for Kids Program. Sourcing food from Foodbank enables us to provide more food for the children and our helpers.
SA Support Services Inc.
Foodbank has been a tremendous help to SA Support Services Inc.
Without the support of Food bank we would not be able to give our clients the quality of life that we give them. Because of the cost savings it enables us to acquire sports equipment and take our clients on outings.

We could not run the camps and programs on offer without the help of Foodbank.
Everyone is so helpful each time I come. Well done.

Foodbank is literally our bread and butter. Without it we would not be able to provide for the needs of our community, from Breakfast Club for Primary School aged children through to Community meals, thanks Foodbank.
