Hunger relief organisation Foodbank has teamed up with Woolworths for a campaign that aims to provide meals to families and children in need.

As a part of fundraising for Foodbank's Back to School campaign, Woolworths shoppers can purchase a $1 token in store or online which will help provide two meals to children in need.

“Families are currently gearing up to prepare for the new school year which should be a time of wonder and excitement, but sadly 15 per cent of children living in food insecure households go to school at least once a week without lunch,” Foodbank CEO Brianna Casey said.

“We want to make it easier on Aussie families by raising much needed funds and providing meals to those who need it most, which is why we have partnered with Woolworths for this important appeal.”

Since opening in 1992, Foodbank has provided over 594 million meals to Australians in need. Working with Foodbank since 2002 in support of its mission to fight hunger across Australia, Woolworths has supplied 32 million meals.

Foodbank's Back to School $1 tokens are available at Woolworths until February 12.
