Foodbank Western Australia’s Operations
Foodbank WA operates in Perth and regional WA. With a fleet of 12 trucks, and warehouses equipped with commercial freezers, chillers and racking, Foodbank WA is providing support throughout the state.
More than 150 volunteers contribute to the operations of Foodbank WA and without their commitment it would not be possible to provide much needed hunger relief.
