Every year all three levels of government seek input and feedback as part of their pre-budget consultation process.
During this process Daily Bread makes submissions that bring attention to and inform policies and programs that impact those struggling with hunger and poverty in the wider community. We focus on specific areas where we can make a difference, are realistic and achievable, and make the biggest impact on the communities we serve.
Ending hunger in our communities requires a strong commitment from governments at all levels to reduce poverty.
Daily Bread develops innovative public policy proposals by building on our research fact base, and forming relationships with key stakeholders and policy experts. We believe that policy must be achievable, and therefore we work with an informed scan of the political environment. Most importantly, we incorporate the voice of people directly experiencing poverty in the policy development process.
