FoodForward SA (FFSA) commissioned Impact Amplifier (IA) to conduct an impact assessment of its multi-faceted FoodBanking model to establish the social impact of the redistributed edible surplus food through its national network.

The main focus of this assessment was to establish the financial value of the socio-economic impact of FoodForward SA's model; and the social outcomes for the beneficiaries who receive food and other services provided by Beneficiary Organisations (BO) supported by FFSA.

The assessment period was 1 March 2019 to 29 February 2020. IA reviewed data provided by FFSA and from interviews and surveys completed with a representative sample of Beneficiary Organisations registered with FFSA.

    This assessment was conducted between 1 September 2020 and December 2020 by the research team at Impact Amplifier. This report documents the research process, findings and recommendations to FFSA regarding ways to enhance the impact it is achieving.
