This sensational group rescues perishable, fresh and nutritious food from cafes, caterers, supermarkets and wholesalers and delivers it to disadvantaged, vulnerable people.

Food Rescue is a philanthropically funded program run by UnitingCare West.
Food Rescue services disadvantaged people in Western Australia.
It aims to alleviate hunger by saving perishable, fresh, nutritious food from landfill and redistributing to those who need it.
Food is rescued from supermarkets, distribution centres, cafes, restaurants wholesalers, caterers and function centres and is redistributed through a network of agencies and programs that reach the homeless, women and children in crisis, drug and alcohol crisis centres, emergency relief, new arrivals, Indigenous Australians and low and fixed income earners of all ages.
In WA alone, nearly 14,000 people are homeless each night and a further 111,000 per year are at risk of requiring food assistance.
Food Rescue is fully funded through donations by individuals, businesses and philanthropic funding. We require donations and volunteers to continue to operate to service disadvantaged West Australians and do our bit for this amazing planet we live on.

“…the way farmers’ markets should be”
The FP2P Program distinguishes authentic farmers’ market stallholders from other market participants. It works to recognise and promote as well as increase the profit and viability of our genuine producers. Members are provided with exclusive on-site signage and media exposure, as well as the right to display the unique FP2P Accreditation symbol and stamp of approval at their market stall. The accreditation program ensures that the public are only buying from genuine producers, giving them the rightful chance to be educated on where their food comes from and how it is grown, raised or made, as well as meeting customer’s expectations of the way authentic farmers’ market should be.
One of the FP2P Program’s aims is to continue to build the “social aspect” and “sense of community” at all farmers’ markets by encouraging customers to take more interest in the items they are buying and ask more questions about the origin of the food. Customers will come to you for information and understanding, with the reassurance you are an authentic stallholder. Producers should see an involvement in the FP2P Program as a unique chance to proudly educate the public about life on the land and take this opportunity to promote the love, passion and dedication that goes into producing food for our country.
FP2P understands the work involved in attending a farmers’ market, so make sure you to get the most out of it by becoming accredited!
Some of the many benefits provided to accredited stallholders include:
*Your own FP2P stall sign and certificate
*Widespread media coverage all year round
*Several radio interviews
*Your profile and selected products promoted on the FP2P website (www.frompaddocktoplate.com.au)
*Editorials in selected newspapers and magazines
*A short video filmed on farm for promotional purposes
*An opportunity to feature in the proposed FP2P book sequel and documentary for promotional purposes
*Social media coverage on Twitter and Facebook (a way to communicate with your customers)
*Free annual subscription to the FP2P newsletter
*Free communication with your customers via the FP2P contact database
*Notification of new market stalls available throughout WA farmers' markets
*Potential to sell more product
*Reduced competition with re-sellers

The Melville Theatre Company was founded in 1982 and presents community productions of plays and musicals.

The Melville Theatre Company was the brainchild of the late David J. Burton who, in 1982, called a meeting for interested people in the community to form a theatre company in the Melville area.
As a result of this meeting the Melville Theatre Company was born. The newly formed company’s first production was the farce, Not Now Darling. With its second production, The Sound of Music, the young company won the Finley Award for the Best Production of the Year in Community Theatre. Since then, actors and directors have consistently featured in the list of awards at the annual State Drama Festival. In recent times, Melville has taken home three more Finley awards for Best Play; one for our 2010 production of The Return, in 2013 for Rabbit Hole and the 2014 production of Twelve Angry Men.
Initially our seasons were performed in the Melville Civic Centre, but since 1987, our venue has been the Roy Edinger Centre, on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra. For many years we shared this venue with a multitude of other users, which created difficulties for all parties, however, in 1998 we were granted sole management by the City of Melville and have thus been able to create a real theatre within the centre, including raked seating, carpeting and a new lighting and sound system.
