Foodbank fighting to reduce hunger
Dexus joined the fight to reduce hunger in Australia, partnering with Foodbank, Australia’s largest food relief organisation to provide support to those in need during the Christmas period and those communities that were impacted by the Australian bushfires. Dexus collaborated with office management teams around Australia to set up food donation stations in the lobbies of Dexus office buildings. The initiative was communicated across the customer portals, encouraging customers to donate non-perishable food times to support those in need in Dexus’s communities. The Foodbank drive ran from late November 2019 through mid-January 2020, collecting 185 boxes of food that supplied an estimated 2,951 meals to communities impacted by poverty, drought and fire. Altogether, the donated food weighed 1,639 kilograms – approximately the weight of a Holden Commodore!
