HUNGER IS A PROBLEM:
The thought that some families do not have food on the table or that the food they do have is minimal and would possibly not get them through to the next payday is to some unimaginable.
Nonetheless, HUNGER is very real here in Australia.

Of food rescued each week by our team.
Food Solutions beginnings where very humble. It all started in a small kitchen on Frank Street, Mt Druitt in the home of founders Abraham and Allison Akkary. Our first FOOD SOLUTIONS Street Meal took place on the 6th September 2006 serving around 100 locals.
Since then the CMP Team have become one of Australia’s leading food rescue organisations, harvesting over 60 tonnes of quality food each week from Food Retailers, Manufactures and Distributors and through multiple programs we deliver these essential resources to more than 1 Million people in need throughout NSW every year

Christ Mission Possible (CMP) started our first STREET MEALS program in September 2006. Witnessing the growing need for food assistance CMP launched the first FREE FOOD SHOP in 2010. Years on the programs are still operating in different locations such as Churches, Community Centres, and Schools to be accessible to the community. Across the different locations over 15,000 people each week are accessing our service/programs for food assistance. Every street meal and food shop is free of charge and no bookings are required so that anyone in need is able to attend.
Each year our FOODSHARE pragram supports other local community groups, churches and charities with food for their communities through our FOOD SOLUTIONS Distribution Centre.
FOODSHARE works like a FOODBANK, we harvest food from retailers, manufacturers and Distributors bring it into our distribution centre and then share it with our Partners.

BROWN PAPER BAG SCHOOL PROGRAM
Knowing that when the bell rings for lunch and recess they have a lunch bag full of nutritious food can change a childs entire day.
Teachers estimate that the average student loses more than 2 hours a day of learning time when they come to school hungry.
Teachers also report an increased workload due to hungry students as the children find it harder to concentrate, are lethargic and demonstrate behavioral problems
FOOD SOLUTIONS has been providing thousands of lunches direct to schools to combat this problem
At the end of 2016 we launched BROWN PAPER BAG. BPB collaborates with teachers and principles to identify
children within the schools that are most at risk.
BPB practically helps in the fight against HUNGER within our local school’s.
These programs enable hungry children to enjoy a nutritious meal and allow’s them to engage and participate
fully in all the educational and social opportunities that the school year offer.
