AIP members invited to fight food insecurity


AIP members invited to fight food insecurity

Members of the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) in Victoria recently volunteered at Foodbank Yarraville to pack approximately 18,268 meals for the community.

The AIP team were split over two sections, the Mixed Grocery Hamper Section and the Pick Pack Food Order Section, to help pack food for Foodbank to distribute to disadvantaged Victorians experiencing food insecurity.

Their hard work supported at least 18 charities across the state by packing 10,139 kg of food orders. This was equivalent to approximately 18,268 meals, or feeding a household of 4, 3 meals a day for 1522 days or 4.17 years.

The AIP said the volunteer days form part of its commitment to help fight food waste. All of industry is invited to attend the next packing day on 2 July.
