Darwin Airport Charity Golf Day

“Our Annual Charity Golf Day was originally conceived as an opportunity for the members of the Darwin International Airport community (airport staff, tenants, suppliers and contractors) to get together for a fun and interactive day, whilst also contributing to a charitable cause.

We believe the Airport community extends beyond the airport boundary and we encourage businesses that work with us to become involved in this worthwhile event.”

Ian Kew, Chief Executive Officer Northern Territory Airports Pty Ltd

2014 Recipient – Foodbank NT

Foodbank NT is a not-for-profit organisation tasked with creating a central donation/collection point for “surplus” food in Darwin, for subsequent distribution to not-for-profit organisations.

Foodbank NT collects edible but surplus food and groceries from the country’s farmers, manufacturers and retailers. It then stores, sorts and distributes these items to not-for-profit organisations and charities. These NFP’s then provide this food to disadvantaged people who, without the provision of such food, go hungry.

Each year more and more Territorians – half of whom are children – experience food insecurity. Unfortunately many charities are turning people away because they do not have the resources to cope with the increase in demand. Recent statistics show that 134 people are turned away each month.

Through this partnership, the Airport will be funding the purchase of an industrial sized freezer to store cold goods that are donated to Foodbank NT. This freezer would not only increase their ability to extend the shelf life of such goods, it would also help to increase the amount of food they are able to store and then provide to charities, who in turn will be able to help a larger number of disadvantaged people.

In 2012 Foodbank NT provided 114,652 meals to charities. In 2013 this number increased to 165,170. The number of meals provided needs to be increased for 2014 and 2015 to achieve the vision of a ‘Territory without hunger’.

Foodbank NT was established in December 2009 and currently distributes goods to 110 organisations within the Northern Territory that provide support to the homeless and disadvantaged.
