Food Relief during COVID

To meet the rise in demand for food relief due to COVID-19, the Brisbane team introduced two new initiatives, Food Hampers and cooked meals produced by local ‘Hospitality Heroes’. From July to October 2020, the hamper program saw nearly 20,000 hampers created and distributed to people in need. Our hospitality friends from Victoria Park Golf Course, Australian Catering Services and Pawpaw Café, created more than 7,200 meals for vulnerable communities between June and August. Food relief has been extended to support 12 new charities, with purchased food supplementing rescued food for the first time ever. Fresh produce has also been sourced from wholesalers impacted by the hospitality downturn in QLD and Northern NSW.
