Labor's Foodbank commitment

November 12, 2018

A Labor Government will reverse Scott Morrison's callous cuts to Foodbank.

Foodbank does an extraordinary job partnering with the food and grocery industry to recover excess or unsaleable products that can be delivered to Australians in need. They work hard to distribute food and groceries with a value of more than $200 million.

The Liberals' cut puts Foodbank's work at risk.

Cutting $323 000 from an organisation which provides groceries and meals just six weeks before Christmas shows just how out of touch the Liberals are.

This is all about priorities. The Liberals care more about a tax giveaway to the big banks than helping Australians in need.
 
Labor urges Scott Morrison to acknowledge his government has made a big mistake and reverse this decision. This is not an issue to be stubborn and arrogant about.
 
If Mr Morrison refuses to reverse his cut, a Labor Government will.
 
Labor will make sure our charities have the resources they need to support our fellow Australians, especially children.
