We're thrilled to announce our partnership with Eat Up, a charity that delivers healthy food to schools for kids who would otherwise go without.
Just under 11% of Australian children live in poverty, and there are thousands of young Aussies who go to school each day without any lunch. Without a square meal in the middle of the day, it's harder to concentrate, to learn, or to secure a better future.
With the generous help of volunteers, Eat Up makes and delivers thousands of lunches each month to schools around Australia. Since 2013, they have made an impressive 1 million lunches - feeding hungry tummies across the country and ensuring hunger is never a reason education is compromised.
2020 has been a hard year for many families, with household incomes being significantly impacted by COVID-19. At Deliveroo, we believe it's important to give back to the communities in which we operate.
We are looking forward to working with Eat Up to make a real difference to the lives of young Australians by raising awareness of food vulnerability.
