Food for thought

It’s hard to believe, but there are many young Aussies who go to school each day without any lunch. And without food, concentration is compromised. Which means learning is compromised. Which means their future is compromised. And that’s not really fair, is it?

Eat Up is all about changing that. With the generous help and lunch-making skills of a dedicated army of hospitality students and volunteers, we make and deliver hundreds of lunches a month to schools in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs. In fact, since 2013, we’ve delivered over 34,000 lunches. Which is over 34,000 afternoons of learning salvaged from the grips of hunger. And we’ll keep going until all of Australia’s hungry school kids are fed.

Eat. Learn. Grow. It’s so simple, a kid would get it.

Help out.

10.9% of Australian children live in poverty. And those kids need all the help they can get. So even if you don’t have any spare dough, you can still support us by chipping in alongside other teachers, hospitality students, parents, and general-do-gooders.

And we don’t just need help to spread Vegemite; we need help spreading the word, too, across social media and in the community. So you can help out just by sticking your hand up and telling the rest of Australia that this is not OK.

On average, three students per classroom are regularly arriving hungry in the morning, which directly affects their ability to concentrate, engage and enjoy school. It also causes disruptions for other kids who are trying to learn. Teachers see it every day, but many others do not know how bad the problem actually is. So we need to educate every school in the country on what’s going on, and how we can help.

To get Eat Up into a school near you, fill out the form and we’ll send them everything they need to get started.
