From the global pandemic, to rising cost of living and natural disasters, these events have accelerated the issue of food insecurity for many, many Australians. Food relief is not only being sought out by those who are homeless and unemployed, but working families, refugees, single parents, school leavers, First Nations People and many more.
More than one in three Australians (38%) who were food insecure during the last year had never experienced food insecurity prior to the pandemic.
Nestlé General Manager of Foods, Kristina Czepl, said, “As Nestlé has worked with Foodbank for many years, we realise food relief often depends on what’s available – people can receive a mix of items and not necessarily know how to turn them into a nutritious meal.
“That’s an issue we wanted to help address. The idea of a recipe base that would make a great-tasting meal no matter what ingredients are on hand was born, and from this, we created the first-ever custom product for Foodbank.”
Foodbank Australia CEO, Brianna Casey, added, “Foodbank receives a wide range of donated food every day. MAGGI Hearty One Pot Casserole recipe base will be the ultimate value-add, enabling people to easily prepare wholesome, tasty meals.
“We are so grateful to Nestlé and other partners who have led the creation of this product and so generously donated their goods and services. This initiative is already helping millions of people create wholesome meals, moving us closer to ensuring no one goes without.”
