It’s estimated that in the next 12 months 525,000 people will run out of food and rely on food relief assistance for their next meal.
Foodbank Victoria accepts food donations (which are fit for consumption) from growers, manufacturers, and local businesses. You can donate excess stock, products near the end of their shelf-life, or you can dedicate a proportion of your output to Foodbank Victoria.
We receive and redistribute from farmers, manufacturers and retailers. This includes product that is out of specification, close to date code, has incorrect labeling or damaged packaging as well as excess stock and deleted lines.
Foodbank Victoria also accept a variety of personal hygiene items, including soap, shampoo and conditioner, sanitary pads, toilet tissue, toothbrushes and much more.
If you are thinking of making a food donation, head over to our Food We Accept page, to see a full list of the different foods we can accept.
