Our Story

We are The StoreHouse, a social enterprise that is committed to reducing food insecurity in our local communities. When you shop at The StoreHouse you are partnering with us to see food insecurity in Australia reduced.

Food insecurity defines a spectrum of circumstances that ranges from occasional anxiety over accessing food to going without food altogether.

The StoreHouse is open to EVERYONE. We offer a large range of high quality products at discount prices, making every dollar go further. And the best part – you can shop knowing you are helping other Australian families while shopping for yours.

How it works

We encourage everyone in our local communities to shop at The StoreHouse and partner with our vision of reducing food insecurity in Australian communities.

Emergency Food Relief (EFR)

We understand there are a number of people and families who can’t afford to purchase groceries at all, so we have EFR centres set up in each location to offer families and individuals access to free food.

School Food Pantries

According to the 2015 Foodbank Hunger Report, two thirds of Australian teachers report children come to school hungry or without having eaten breakfast on any given morning. To help combat this we have set up food pantries in local government schools to assist the schools in ensuring students have access to safe and nutritious food for normal growth and development and an active and healthy life.

Help end food insecurity

4+ MILLION

More than four million Australians (18%) have experienced food insecurity in the last 12 months*

THREE IN 10

Three in 10 Australians experiencing food insecurity attribute living on a low income or pension as the main reason they are unable to afford enough food*

CHILDREN

Children represent 22% of all food-insecure Australians*

Our partners

We cannot reduce food insecurity in communities across Australia without working in partnership with other local organisations. Where we can in each location we will also provide donated food items to charities that have a similar purpose of reducing food insecurities in our local communities.
