Our Principles

Government and community efforts to increase collaboration, innovation and coordination across Tasmania’s food relief sector will be guided by:

Supporting Tasmanians in Need

Food relief provides a critical opportunity to connect Tasmanians in need to services that address the determinants of food insecurity;

Community Driven

Local communities are best placed to understand local need. They must be informed, connected and empowered to develop locally based solutions;

Working Together

Collaboration across all levels of Government, the food relief sector and the community sectors is critical to successful local solutions that meet the demand for food relief and drive food resilience; and

Informed and Responsive to Future Need

Data gathering and information sharing across the food relief sector is required to ensure solutions meet the needs of individual communities and can respond to future demand.
