“People often respond with surprise to being told that people go hungry in The Lucky Country” Dr Luke Craven, an affiliate of the university of Sydney’s Environment Institution and consultant to the Sydney Food Business Incubator project “The problem is largely invisible in public and political discourse, due to a lack of measurement and poor choice of language.”
As many as 17,000 people in the city of Sydney council area are classified as “food insure” or unable to afford enough food for themselves or their families. A 2015 Salvation Army survey found 10% of Australians couldn’t afford enough food to live comfortably, or even healthfully. The number of people in trouble is only getting higher- from 2016 to 2017, there was a 10% increase in the number of individuals needing food relief charities.
