Owen Toyota & The Community

Local Community Initiatives We Support

We try to support as many local charities & events as possible because the city of Griffith & its surrounds have supported us over the past 35 years.

NSW Champion Award

NSW Champion Award

Owen Toyota was fortune enough to receive a “NSW Champion Award” from Gerry Andersen the Chief Executive Officer of Foodbank NSW. Owen Toyota received this award in recognition of our ongoing support to Foodbank NSW.

Foodbank NSW is a non-denominational, community supported not-for-profit, that collects unwanted food and re-distributes it to people in need through welfare agencies.

Foodbank NSW is a great cause to get behind, just look at the amazing things they achieve;

  • Foodbank NSW delivers 5.6 million meals a year to people in need in NSW (and more than 31 million meals nationally) but there is an ever-increasing demand that needs to be met.
  • Foodbank NSW supplies more than 560 charities, community groups and schools with the food it takes to feed the disadvantaged.
  • Foodbank NSW saves 4 million kilos of food from being dumped every year. Almost 1 million kilos of this is fresh fruit and veg. This rescued food not only goes to feeding the needy, but also reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 6 million kgs a year.

Owen Toyota will continue to support this great cause as its one we feel passionately about.
