1. Grab a ‘cheeky Nando’s’ to give someone else a meal
With the statistics showing that one in five people in Australia are currently experiencing food insecurity, there has never been a more important time to give back.
Foodbank Australia has seen an extraordinary increase in demand for food from those who have never had to ask for food assistance before.
Nando’s – known for its spicy Peri-Peri chicken – is lending a helping hand to those facing hardship by donating a meal to Foodbank for every purchase over the value of $15.
The chain has already donated almost 618,012 meals to Foodbank, with the goal of reaching one million meals by the end of winter.

This translates to a massive $500,000 contribution to Foodbank’s national food relief effort.
Whether you like your chicken with lemon and herb, mild or hot, order the same meal every time or mix it up, you’ll be giving back to Australians every time you chow down.
2. Enjoy a pint at the pub to give back to your favourite bar
And Nando’s isn’t the only brand giving back.
With pubs just recently given the green light to start serving patrons again it will be a long time until they break even on profits.
Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) has teamed up with the Australian Hotels Association (AHA) and is committed to raise up to $2million worth of support for local pubs throughout these challenging times.
All you have to do is buy a beer voucher from your local pub and CUB will match your support by shouting you another beer.
To date, beer lovers have raised over $1.2 million.
