We’re proud to announce we recently received an award for our Foodbank Australia partnership. Over the last 10 years, our food donations have created over 10 million meals for Aussies in need.
Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation and we were awarded their Patron’s Award, which is given to a company that has demonstrated leadership, innovation, creativity and impact over time in its partnership with Foodbank. Last year alone, we donated over 1.2 million kilograms of food and groceries which was enough to prepare nearly 1.7 million meals. In order to make this happen, we have integrated our supply processes to ensure regular donations to Foodbank warehouses around Australia. This allows them to more easily distribute the food.
We’re very proud of the work our team does behind the scenes to make these donations happen, and we’re delighted this has been recognised. Of course none of these donations would be possible without the tireless work of the Foodbank volunteers who distribute this food to charities and community groups across Australia, so thank you to the Foodbank team.

Did you know that one in 10 babies born in Australia today will develop a food allergy? This worrying statistic indicates that life-threatening allergic reactions in children aged four and under have increased fivefold over the last 10 years. Alarmingly, too, approximately 10 Australians die as a result of allergic reactions (analphylaxis) each year.
That’s why Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia has declared May 13-19 “Food Allergy Week” to increase community awareness and understanding. As part of the “one in 10” campaign, it’s asking everyone to show support by painting one fingernail out of 10 and making a donation to the cause at foodallergyaware.com.au – you’ll also find details about events planned for the week.
How is Coles supporting?
A strict diet is essential for those living with allergies, but it doesn’t need to be bland and uninteresting with our wide range of allergy-friendly products and recipes. We’re also making allergy-friendly products more affordable for customers with allergy week specials.
