Hello, we’re Foodbank WA
We believe everyone should have access to healthy food. There are Western Australians going without every day, and we are working hard to change that.
We provide food and groceries to those who struggle to afford them. But we are more than food. We also deliver nutrition education to promote healthy eating and advocate on behalf of people that experience food stress.
Across the food supply chain network we work with farmers, wholesalers, manufactures and retailers who donate and redirect surplus product to us. This also plays a vital role in tackling food waste and positively contributes to climate change by reducing CO2 emissions arising from landfill.
Last financial year we provided almost 7.8 million meals to Western Australians through our charity partners and schools. This a staggering 1 million meals than the previous year. Sadly, we know that there is still an unmet gap of 30%.
Times are tough, especially now. There are many reasons why people find themselves struggling to afford enough food. The need to support each other has never been this great. Many people are reaching out for help for the first time in their lives.
Our vision is to end hunger in Western Australia by 2030. Our purpose is to Feed. Educate. Advocate.
Together we can help get food to Western Australians who need it.
