📰 4ZZZ NEWS | Cost of living pressures on charities - Loaves and Fishes 📰

Foodbank, Australia’s largest food relief organisation recently reported “unprecedented” demand for food relief services, with expectations that this trend will continue. With rising cost of living, interest rate hikes, and rental stress, Australian households are feeling the impacts, and food is often an essential item people do without.

Loaves and Fishes is a non-for-profit charity organisation dedicated to caring for those less fortunate in the greater Brisbane area. The organisation feeds over 3000 people weekly across their services. They aim to continue to be able to provide emergency relief for those affected by the current floods, but face challenges due to the rising cost of groceries and essentials.

Loaves and Fishes are one of the 201 organisations that have been given a CommBank community grant of $10,000.

4ZZZ Journalist Harry Kuzewicz spoke to CEO, Scott Bourke about this grant and the cost of living pressures on charities.
