Here at JobCo, we understand that many of our clients experience financial hardship and - keeping in line with our values - we aim to provide our clients with assistance wherever necessary. This is why JobCo. has partnered with Australia's leading not-for-profit hunger relief organisation, Foodbank Victoria.
Having a food bank service means we can help people address their immediate basic needs in times of crisis. Food relief can act as a safety net for people experiencing economic distress or hardship, and have limited means or resources to help them alleviate their financial crisis.
Foodbank Victoria is an independent not-for-profit organisation with almost 90 years’ experience providing food relief. We are the largest provider of food relief in Victoria, including in times of disaster as part of the State Relief and Recovery Team. Our vision is healthy food for all Victorians, yet 1 in 7 people struggle to afford food and 1 in 7 children go to school hungry. To ensure we can reach as many people as possible, we work with food donors across the supply chain to source edible food from farmers, manufacturers and retailers. Food is then distributed to our network of 450 charity partners around the state, helping to feed more than 100,000 Victorians every month.
