Food Rescue, a service of UnitingCare West

Food Rescue is a UnitingCare West program feeding disadvantaged people in Western Australia. It aims to alleviate hunger by rescuing perishable, fresh and nutritious food from cafes, caterers, supermarkets and wholesalers and delivering it to disadvantaged, vulnerable people.

The program assists a variety of people in need including people experiencing homelessness, women and children in crisis, vulnerable young people, indigenous communities, elderly people, refugees and new arrivals and families on low incomes.

By connecting the community, Food Rescue assists over 120 charities around Perth, WA. With the support of over 100 volunteers, we distribute food to 12,950 people doing it tough a week. 

Another iniative, the Food Rescue Cargo Carts, is driven by corporate volunteers who pick up left over food items from over 40 cafes. Food is then delivered to charities and homeless shelters the same day.

Food Rescue relies on the support of public donations, corporate funding and the dedication of volunteers.
