Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities who are feeding vulnerable Australians. Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food rescued for food relief organisations nation-wide.
Foodbank WA was established in 1994 by an initiative backed by donations from the Lotteries Commission of Western Australia and Rio Tinto. In addition to a purpose-built facility at Perth Airport, Foodbank WA now also operates distribution centres in Albany, Bunbury, Geraldton, Boulder, Mandurah, and Joondalup. Foodbank WA is now helping to feed more than 40,000 people every month and relies on the generosity of supporters, volunteers, and donors to help feed vulnerable families and children.In a wealthy state such as WA, nobody should do without a meal.
