4DEMONSTRATING OUR CORE VALUES

Our vision of a Victoria with healthy food for all and our purpose to source and distribute food to assist Victorians experiencing hardship demonstrates our reason for being is socially responsible, however we believe we further exhibit the principles of CSR through our core values.
At the core of our success is our people, and they are our focus. We want to attract and keep the best people who believe in our work and drive our impact. By celebrating diversity and investing in our staff we are building a culture that ensures our people are engaged, motivated and equipped with the skills and capabilities to help us achieve our goals.
As a member of the State Government’s Emergency Response and Recovery Committee, we are also there in times of disaster as the leading provider of emergency food relief to Victorian communities.
In FY15 we evaluated our emergency response process, resulting in a dedicated fund which enables Foodbank to be more agile and responsive in times of disaster.
Looking after the environment is at the core of our operations. We are committed to acting in an environmentally friendly manner wherever possible and actively seek to do so throughout our business.
Each year Foodbank saves millions of kilograms of food from landfill. This financial year we were able to rescue 9,462,374 kilograms of food product and divert this away from landfill and pollution of the environment.
Foodbank Victoria has waste levels below 1.9%, far lower than the industry standard. We have a strong culture of ensuring our waste is disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
