Australia produces substantially more food than it consumes. Yet, more than 1 in 5 Australians have experienced hunger at some point.
At least once a week, three in ten food insecure Australians go a whole day without eating.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, single parents, low income earners, women, those who are unemployed and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are at significantly higher risk.
Food insecurity can cause a significant decline in health and emotional well-being, sense of self-worth, social relationships and overall standard of living.

Better access to education and employment opportunities makes a difference.
- Indigenous people who complete school are 14 times less likely to be imprisoned than those that do not.
