Did you know at any given time, approximately 21,600 Illawarra residents face food insecurity, meaning they are not able to access food that meets their health and cultural needs? Meanwhile, tonnes of edible food end up in landfill every week.
Food Fairness Illawarra is calling all (food) businesses of the Illawarra to start donating their surplus food to one of the local food rescue and relief organisations.
Saving quality excess food will not only save the environment and reduce waste disposal costs, but greatly assist the people in our community that need it!
