Verint APAC is excited to announce a community partnership with Queensland’s largest and most trusted hunger relief charity, Foodbank Queensland.
Every year, Foodbank Queensland sources over 14 million kilograms of essential groceries and provides more than 25 million meals to Queenslanders suffering from hunger. Sadly, demand for food relief is higher than ever recorded in Foodbank Queensland’s 25-year history, with one third of Queenslanders facing a hunger crisis having never gone hungry before the pandemic.
Perhaps one of the most shocking figures is how little it takes to help. Every $1 donated to Foodbank Queensland can be turned into two nutritious meals for a Queenslander suffering from hunger.
Verint APAC is honoured to partner with Foodbank Queensland and work with them to help make sure no one in Queensland goes without!
Over the coming weeks, volunteers from Verint’s Brisbane staff will be donating their time to help Foodbank Queensland sort and prepare food items for distribution in the lead up to the busy Christmas period. This festive season at the end of a tumultuous year is expected to see a huge demand on Foodbank’s services and its great that we can help out and lend a hand or two.
