Nando's partners with Foodbank to support vulnerable Aussies

The chain has been supporting frontline workers with a 50% discount.

Nando’s has partnered with Foodbank for a community-focussed initiative that aims to provide one million meals to Aussies in need by the end of winter.

Starting today, for every order over $15, Nando’s is donating one meal to the relief organisation.

The one million meal goal translates to a $500,000 contribution to Foodbank’s national food relief effort. The initiative is available nationally through takeaway, delivery and dine-in (where available).

The initiative follows Nando’s recent effort to support frontline workers, offering a 50% discount to healthcare and emergency services workers across the country.

“Providing more than 657,000 meals at half price to essential workers across Australia over the last six weeks has been incredibly rewarding. Nando’s is a purpose-led business so being a good neighbour in our communities is really important to us. As the economic realities of COVID-19 start to sink in, we’re proud to be launching an initiative that our customers can really feel part of and will support the vulnerable Australians who are really feeling it,” Nando’s community partnerships and marketing director Helen Reece said.

“We’ve kickstarted the initiative by donating more than 18,500 meals, which is directly linked to the number of PERi-PERi sauce bottles we’ve sold in our restaurants through pick-up and delivery during the COVID-19 lockdown,” Reece added.
