The annual Foodbank Awards, recognising the outstanding contributions of the companies who play a pivotal role in helping to bring food relief to the thousands of Australians doing it tough every day.
Both Kellogg’s and SPC have come out on top; Kellogg’s was awarded the Foodbank Purple Beret for distinguished service in fighting hunger and SPC Ardmona received the Foodbank Purple Plate for conspicuous gallantry in the fight against hunger through the Foodbank Key Staples Program.
Rebecca Boustead, Director of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs for Kellogg Asia-Pacific said, “The issue of hunger for children and families in need is something that’s very close to our hearts. Every day, one in seven children in Australia go to school on an empty stomach, while many more families rely on the support that relief organisations like Foodbank are committed to provide. We’re proud to be partnered with Foodbank to continue the fight against hunger and to help make a nourishing start to the day possible.”
Reg Weine, SPC Ardmona’s Managing Director, said: “SPC has had a proud association with Foodbank since it was founded. We’re delighted to provide quality Australian fruit, tomatoes, baked beans and spaghetti – a staple in all diets – to Australians in need. This award is a great honour and we look forward to working with Foodbank for many years to come”.
