Fighting hunger in Australia
Foodbank Australia is the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia, providing support to over 2,400 charity partners and over 2000 schools across the country, helping to provide food to more than 815,000 people in need each month. It acts as a ‘pantry’ for charities and community groups who feed the hungry and links the food industry’s surplus with the wider community.
ORIX & Foodbank
ORIX Australia has been involved with Foodbank since 2013. Each quarter, we provide volunteers to assist in the picking and packing of food items to be transported to various charity groups. We also run a food drive once a year prior to the run up to Christmas in the NSW and VIC offices by encouraging staff to donate canned food and or dry goods.
