On 16 April Foodbank released its first ever research report on child hunger in Australia, entitled Rumbling Tummies. The report exposed the shocking statistic that 1 in 5 children are living in food insecure households, and that a child is more likely to go hungry than an adult in Australia today.
To help these rumbling tummies be heard, we approached Melbourne Youth Orchestras to ask what they thought half a million rumbling tummies would sound like. Overwhelmed by the thought of so many kids going hungry, Melbourne Youth Strings composed ‘Rumbling Tummies’. Watch their incredible creation below.
