Did you know that 18% of Australians have experienced food insecurity in the past 12 months? And that 26% of those receiving food relief are under the age of 19? Hunger is a hidden crisis in Australia and charities are struggling to meet the growing issue, and each month 65,000 Australians seeking food relief are unable to be assisted. This is an issue that we're incredibly passionate about at tonika health. So we're helping by running a Christmas food drive (led by Nina, our friendly front-of-desk and student nutritionist).This is your chance to help families,...
