Who We Are

Food Rescue, a program of UnitingCare West, is the link between the thousands of tonnes of fresh, nutritious food sent to landfill each year by the food industry, and the thousands of hungry and disadvantaged people in Perth. Food Rescue supplies food to over 75 relief agencies in Perth, feeding over 11,000 people every week.

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.

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