In Australia, we throw away an unbelievable amount of perfectly edible food every day. At the same time, a growing number of Australians find themselves struggling to make ends meet.
It is often assumed that in an economically prosperous and produce abundant country like Australia, food insecurity is not a big problem for many people. However, the reality is very different. In the course of a year, more than 1 in 7 experience food insecurity in Australia – that’s 3.6 million people. More confronting still, for more than 1 million of these people, food insecurity is not a once-off, but a regular occurrence. Food security occurs when people lack secure access to sufficient amounts of safe, nutritious and appropriate food.
