THANKS TO YOU, THE RECOVERY HAS BEGUN
Thanks to the heartfelt generosity of people like you, Foodbank has been there to support and comfort Australians as they navigate the devastating aftermath of the bushfire crisis. Your support, through volunteering, donating essential supplies or via a financial donation, has enabled Foodbank to work quickly to help those who needed it most.
As part of the official emergency response network, our primary focus throughout the crisis has been to deliver exactly what is needed, when and where it’s needed in order to efficiently and effectively support the relief efforts.
Together, since the beginning of January, we have been able to answer the desperate call for help and our emergency response relief efforts included:
- 9 semi-trailers sent to the South Coast NSW (places like Cobargo, Narooma, Bega, Bermagui, Eden, Womboyn)
- Over 1,000 pallets (approx 435, 943 kilos) of food, groceries, fresh produce, personal hygiene items and pet food have been distributed
- Over 30,000 kilos of carrots and sweet potatoes have been flown by helicopter into NSW national parks for Australia’s endangered native animals.
These devastating bushfires have left people all over our state in need of our continued support. We can only be there for them because of supporters like you – thank you.
