Wanderers volunteer at Foodbank NSW

The Wanderers A-League team headed to Foodbank in Glendenning to volunteer their time to sort food and build Christmas hampers.

Foodbank is Australia's largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities who are feeding vulnerable Australians.

Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food rescued for food relief organisations nation-wide.

In 2020 alone, 38% of food insecure residents in NSW and ACT are accessing food relief at least once a week versus 16% in 2019.

The recent impact of COVID-19 have seen Generation Z the hardest hit with food insecurity. 

The Wanderers A-League side headed to Glendenning on Wednesday afternoon, volunteering their time to pack 190 Christmas hampers for families in need as well as sorting through 7 tonnes of potatoes and multiple palettes of personal hygiene items.
