Foodbank – filling a desperate need

President Barry presenting cheque to Greg

Greg Pattinson, the CEO of Foodbank SA, was guest speaker at our meeting on August 8. Greg provided some sobering statistics on the number of people in the State who are reliant of the support of community service organisations for the supply of some of the basics of life.

Foodbank is the largest food relief organisation in South Australia, Gregg said, and supplies food to most major community service groups- Anglicare, Uniting Care, etc.  Last year Foodbank supplied over five million meals including breakfast for students in 460 schools.

Our Club has been a long time supporter of Foodbank, and that support continued when President Barry presented a cheque to Greg at the conclusion of his presentation.
