Description

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.

Prolonged hunger is a leading health issue. Sufferers are vulnerable to a range of health issues including compromised immunity, reduced bone density and poor organ health.

Children and seniors are most at risk. For children, poor and inadequate nutrition can lead to learning and growth problems and lead to a life of unfulfilled potential.

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.
