Empower Australia Announces Milestone of Distributing Three Million Meals Amidst Economic Challenges

Melbourne, Australia 29/05/24 Empower Australia, the charitable arm of Planetshakers Church, is announcing a significant milestone in its ongoing efforts to combat food insecurity: the distribution of three million meals since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. This significant event identifies a critical time as rising costs of living, higher interest rates, and inflation intensify the need for support within the community.

Neil Smith, CEO of Empower Australia, highlighted the increased demand for meal support in recent months. "The economic challenges faced by many Australians have escalated, making our mission to provide meals more crucial than ever," said Smith. "Reaching three million meals distributed is not just a number-it's also a testament to the resilience and generosity of our church and community who have continued to support our efforts as we help those in need."

Empower Australia has expanded its services to address the growing demand, working closely with local suppliers and volunteers to ensure that nutritious meals reach those most in need. The organisation has also implemented innovative strategies to increase efficiency and extend its reach across the region.

"We are committed to not only meeting immediate dietary needs but also to fostering a sense of community and support during these challenging times," Smith added. "This milestone is a stepping stone for us as we continue to pursue our mission with even greater passion and commitment."

Empower Australia invites the community to join in their efforts by volunteering or contributing donations, as the organisation focuses on increasing its impact in the face of ongoing economic difficulties.
