The power of transaction-based giving

Traditional fundraising will always be important. Coming together for a cause is a critical part of being involved in any community. However, we must be more strategic. We need to provide many billions of dollars to create a more equitable world and there is only one place that money is readily available – transaction-based giving in the “commercial world.”

Our vision for ZERO hunger

1 bag of pasta is the basis for a nutritious family meal and our mission is to supply enough pasta to give every child in need a hearty meal. Food rescue and relief organisations estimate that we can meet most of Victoria’s needs by supplying 25 tonne of pasta per month. One individual, or even one company cannot achieve these results, but it is totally possible to achieve this with a group of like-minded businesses. Together, we can change the lives of a family starting with 1 bag of Pasta.

As part of the Make A Difference Program, we can change the lives of a family starting with 1 bag of pasta.
