Feeding hungry kids so they can grow, learn and succeed.
In a country like ours, that's not really fair, is it? Children frequently arrive at school without the food they need to fuel their growing bodies and brains. Missing out on lunch has a big impact on children, with hunger causing fatigue and poor concentration. This commonly leads to learning difficulties and behavioral problems in school, with disadvantaged children falling further behind their peers. Many children come from homes experiencing financial hardship, substance abuse, violence, homelessness or are refugees.
With the help of our partners and dedicated volunteers, each week Eat Up makes and delivers over ten thousand lunches directly to schools for vulnerable children. Eat Up is Australia’s only organisation providing free lunches to students on a national scale. To date we have provided over 1 million lunches to Aussie kids in need!
