Food justice work is critical as this is a time of great hardship and suffering for the most vulnerable in our community: the elderly; the unemployed and those at risk of unemployment – especially the hospitality sector; those on low incomes; those living with disabilities; members of First Nations communities; and newly arrived migrants and refugees. Our local food relief sector in the City of Darebin has already experienced a significant increase in demand which is compounded by disruption to supply through large institutional donors and it is unlikely that this trend will slow – this is why growing food is urgently needed.
Please note that your donations will be collected by Sustain: The Australian Food Network who will use these funds exclusively to deliver food justice work at the Melbourne Food Hub. Sustain has registered DGR status, and all donations over $2.00 are are tax deductible. An invoice will be sent with your donation.
