Foodbank WA works to ease the suffering of those people affected by prolonged hunger.
In partnership with food donors, and more than 900 community groups, welfare agencies and schools, it provides nutrition support to in excess of 68,000 Western Australian's each month.

Foodbank WA has developed nutrition programs to assist people in need with choosing and preparing healthy foods.
It's School Breakfast Program is the the largest in Australia. Currently operating in 432 schools extending from Kalumburu to Warburton to Esperance the program supports more than 16,000 students benefit each week.
The Foodbank WA network extends from the state head office in Perth into regional centres in Albany, Bunbury, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie-Boulder and Peel.
Foodbank WA welcomes volunteers and regularly has groups of corporate volunteers attend to assist with its vital work.

Starlight Children's Foundation brightens the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children, and their families, throughout Australia.
- Type:DGR 1 Status
- Charity:Child Welfare,Family,Fundraising,Local Community,Mental Health
Living with illness or injury can cause enormous strain in the lives of children and their families. The pain, loneliness and isolation that sick children feel dominates their lives, and they often miss out on normal experiences that healthy children take for granted.
Starlight provides programs integral to the total care of seriously ill children – while health professionals focus on treating the illness, Starlight is there to lift the spirits of the child, giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and be a child again.
"You hear laughter walking down the corridor before you see the kids."
