Foodbank is the largest food relief organisation in Australia, servicing a network of over 2,400 charities and 2,000 schools in every state and territory, enabling them to provide food to 815,000 people per month.
Food insecurity, which is different from hunger, a sensation experienced by many of us, is "a situation that exists when people lack secure access to sufficient amounts of safe and nutritious food for normal growth and development and an active and healthy life."
Realising that we could be doing more to help our local community through B2B transactional giving, in 2019 Axia partnered with Foodbank NSW & ACT.
The idea was simple: we wanted to turn pages printed into meals for those who need it.
With 50+ competitors in the print management space, it's not enough to say "our machines are better" or "our service is better," because the end-user's experience will often be similar.
Now, for every deal we sign with a new or existing client, Axia funds a minimum of 2,000 meals to food insecure Australians through Foodbank NSW & ACT.
To date, our clients have helped us fund 147,000 meals, and our goal is to reach 500,000 meals by the end of FY 2021.
You, too, can help make a difference by turning your office print costs into something more meaningful.
How to get involved

3. SOLUTION: You'll be presented with a customised and complete proposal, including finance options, equipment and service — all compared to your current operational costs.
4. IMPLEMENTATION: We'll set up all devices and users, and you'll then receive fast, on-going support, reliable toner delivery, and scheduled preventative maintenance.
