When we learned that one in five children experience food insecurity in Australia, we knew we had to do something about it. With every Roobee Roo purchase made, we give funds to Australian food relief organisations that help provide nutritious meals to people in need.

Having both grown up on the wrong side of poverty, where we didn't know where our next meals were coming from, we know the harsh reality of food insecurity. Sadly 1 in 5 Australian children still go to bed with an empty tummy. And that's not fair. Especially when you consider how much food this country wastes. It might seem crazy, but we want to create an Australian-born children's property that exists to help feed hungry tummies.
There's no way we could do this alone. When you purchase a Roobee Roo book, we donate funds to Australia's incredible food relief agencies. We all know Australia is blessed with some of the best produce in the world, but we sure do waste a lot. 7.3 million tonnes per year a lot. Nearly 300kg per person, per year a lot. There's no reason why anyone should go hungry. Rescuing perfectly edible food that would otherwise go to waste, Australia's food relief agencies source healthy and nutritious ingredients that are then distributed throughout a network of over 1,300 local charities to help feed those most in need. Now that's something to hop about!
For every Roobee Roo book sold, we give funds to help provide a meal. That's a great start, but we want to give more. We've got a lot planned for our little roo with the very special pouch, but we could really use your help. Being independent allows us to give a lot more, but there is only so much a husband and wife can do. We need your support. We need your interest. And most of all, we need your voice @OfficialRoobeeRoo to share your love of #roobeeroo.
