Help for Hunger
Amazon is driven by the belief that no family should go without basic needs like food and housing. This year we have teamed up with Foodbank to donate food approaching its expiry date from our Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne Fulfilment Centres. This has the dual benefit of reducing food waste and feeding some of Australia’s most vulnerable communities.
Amazon is helping to deliver hundreds of thousands of meals to people in need as food banks and community organisations face unprecedented demand.
Since March 2020, Amazon has partnered with local food banks and schools to deliver more than 12 million meals to vulnerable families in over 25 cities across the globe. As millions of families worldwide struggle to secure food as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon has a unique role to play providing a critical service for families in need. In Australia, we've teamed up with Foodbank, Australia’s largest food relief organisation. Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food rescued for food relief organisations nationwide.
