Nutrition for School Kids

No child can be expected to learn on an empty stomach

Yet every year, one million children in Australia experience food insecurity, relying on shelters and charities for their next meal.

Children who go to school hungry have difficulties concentrating in class, experience learning difficulties and are more likely to miss school frequently. Teachers estimate that the average student loses more than 2 hours a day of learning time when they come to school hungry.

This can all lead to long-term effects on their life outcomes and impacts their ability to reach their full potential both in and out of the classroom.

How we deliver our nutrition program

Food Rescue and Delivery

Food that would otherwise go to waste is rescued and delivered to local support charities, such as shelters for families. Our delivery partners span 1300 local charities.

Lifelong Skills and Education

The FEAST (Food Education and Sustainability Training) program inspires kids to eat healthy, waste less and be change makers in their local community. This program trains the kids directly, and trains teachers to expand the reach.
