Foodbanks are a critical resource for people to be able feed themselves and their families.
According to Foodbank Victoria, "around 11,000 Victorians seek food relief each month and are unable to be assisted - 38% are children. Of those assisted, 67% do not receive all they require." Hunger is a serious problem and, in spite of modern prosperity, it's getting more serious. In 2013, there was a 12% increase in the number of people seeking food relief.
Low income, single parent families and those experiencing unemployment are the most likely groups to require assistance.
