The number of South Australians having to access emergency food support every month has risen to over 117,000 which is a 38% increase from just two years ago.

This was revealed in the Foodbank Hunger Report 2018, which found that in the last year four million people across Australia experienced uncertainty about where their next meal was coming from.

Foodbank SA CEO Greg Pattinson joins Nick and Ian on Breakfast to discuss the findings of the Hunger Report.
