Funky Food's Efforts to Combat Rising Food Costs in Australia and Support Our Community

Funky Food's Efforts to Combat Rising Food Costs in Australia and Support Our Community

The Problem
Recent findings in the Selected Living Cost Indexes Report by the ABS have given us real food for thought! The stark reality is that over the past year, the cost of living in Australia has seen an unprecedented surge - reaching a staggering increase of between 6.3% and 9.6% (depending on one's demographic). 📈

One of the primary culprits behind this increase has been the escalating expenses associated with daily sustenance, particularly food.

At Funky Food, we're deeply concerned about this issue, as we believe that the worry of putting food on the table should not be an experience any Australian has to endure. We're so proud to be offering fresh, healthy food to our customers for an amount up to 40% less than grocery stores on a weekly basis.

The Cost of Living Challenge
The cost of living is a pressing issue affecting individuals and families across the nation. With inflation on the rise, everyday expenses like groceries have become increasingly burdensome. Families are grappling with tough choices, and the idea of providing nourishing meals for their loved ones is becoming a challenge.

We hear regularly from Funky Food's customers that knowing that our produce will be an affordable price weekly provides peace of mind.

Our Commitment to Positive Change
In response to these challenges, Funky Food is proud to announce our collaboration with a local state school, where we've embarked on an initiative to provide fresh vegetables to families who may be struggling to afford essential, healthy staples. This partnership underscores our dedication to making a positive impact in our community.

We believe that access to fresh and nutritious food should be a basic right for every individual, regardless of their economic circumstances. Through this collaboration, we aim to alleviate some of the financial pressures that families are facing. By providing fresh vegetables, we hope to ensure that no one in our community has to go to bed hungry.

How You Can Get Involved
Charities like Foodbank provide volunteering opportunities for Australians to make an impact by helping as little as 4 hours a week. But whether it's volunteering your time, donating, or simply spreading the word, every small effort counts. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.

Looking forward
The rising cost of living is a challenge we cannot ignore, but it's also a challenge that we can address together. At Funky Food, we are committed to playing our part in creating a brighter and more nourished future for all Australians. Join us on this journey of positive change, one funky fruit or vegetable at a time. 🤝
