Hunger in Australia
According to Foodbank Australia:
Three in ten Australians now experiencing food insecurity had not gone hungry before the pandemic. Young people are being hardest hit by the impact of Covid-19.
Sixty-one per cent of food insecure Australians have accessed food relief since Covid-19 was declared a global pandemic.
Food insecurity can be defined as “a situation that exists when people lack secure access to sufficient amounts of safe and nutritious food for normal growth and development and an active and healthy life” – Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.
