The Food Relief System
A Glossary is included in this Strategy to foster a shared understanding of the terms often used in discussions regarding food relief and food security.
Tasmania’s current food relief system largely relies on food distribution organisations such as Loaves and Fishes Tasmania and Foodbank Tasmania, to distribute surplus and donated food to food relief providers to provide to those in need. In addition, there are also community driven social enterprises and cooperatives that provide low or no cost food.
The food relief system is illustrated below:
