Foodbank teams with Y Waste for fast food relief

Fri, 12/07/2018 - 15:24

Thanks to a new collaboration between Foodbank, Australia’s largest food relief organisation, and an innovative new app called Y Waste, more leftover food from takeaways and cafes will soon be used to feed people in need.

How much food is wasted in food service?

It is estimated that at least 40 per cent of food purchased by restaurants, cafes and other foodservice businesses around Australia ends up in the bin. Y Waste enables the public to use their smart phones to find and buy discounted food that hasn’t been sold at the end of the trading day. The app already has over 500 registered outlets nationally – including Sumo Salad, Sushi Hub, Roll’d and Muffin Break – with more coming on board every day.

Many of the food merchants who have signed up with Y Waste have indicated that, as well as selling the meals at reduced prices, they wanted to offer free meals to people who need them. Y Waste approached Foodbank to help create a way for local charities to give people seeking food relief the means to access to these free meals via the app.

Getting good food to people in need

Speaking on the new partnership, Foodbank Australia CEO Brianna Casey, said: “Accessing the short-life prepared food generated by cafes and quick serve restaurants has always been logistically challenging for the food rescue sector. Y Waste removes the barriers and enables the meals to go straight into the hands of people who need them.”

“Not only is the food fresh and high quality but there is plenty of variety giving food insecure people choice and dignity in obtaining the help they need to feed themselves and their families,” Brianna said.

According to the founder of Y Waste, Ian Price, the interest from food merchants keen to do the right thing has been overwhelming. “Ninety percent of the food outlets we’ve spoken to want to donate meals in their communities and the indication is that over half of all the meals being offered through Y Waste will end up with people who can’t afford to buy them.”

With over 80,000 food outlets in Australia there is potential for tens of thousands of meals to go to people experiencing food poverty each day. Y Waste will be progressively rolling out availability of the ‘Foodbank Meals’ around Australia during 2019.

If you’re hosting Christmas this year, be sure to check if you have any vegetarians in the mix. That way you can be prepared and create a show-stopping meal that everyone can enjoy.

All of these recipes taste amazing. They are also versatile enough to be enjoyed alongside meat and seafood, or served simply as they are.
