Foodbank SA provides an outlet to food companies for their surplus stock and at the same time, allows community support agencies to save time and resources in the solicitation of nutritious food.
Foodbank is the pantry of Australian charities. We receive food and grocery products from farmers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and the public and make them available to Australia’s hard working charities and community groups.
Foodbank offers low-income recipients a Blue Card program to purchase groceries at the food Hub. These groceries are cheaper than shopping at the supermarket. This card can be used up to four (4) times in three (3) months by the shopper.
Are you on a Centrelink payment? You can purchase your Blue Card today and begin shopping. If you are single you can spend up to $25 per shop, if you are part of a couple, you can spend up to $40 per shop, if you are part of a family, you can spend up to $60.00 per shop (there is some flexibility with spend limits to be discussed at the time of purchase). Contact Foodbank for more information.
Foodbank SA also offers the opportunity for shoppers to buy pre-packed meal kits which you can purchase. These have all the items you will need to cook the meal and the recipe to follow and are a low-cost alternative for cooking healthy meals.
