Food Rescue is a UnitingCare West program servicing 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 and philanthropic funding and the dedication of volunteers.

UnitingCare West's Food Rescue recently participated in a trip to Carnarvon to support growers affected by Cyclone Olwyn. The idea first came from Larry Brewer of Northwest Mobile Butcher and, alongside Vince Garreffa from Mondo Community Warriors, over 10 tonnes of fresh meat and vegetables were collected from local WA growers and trucked to Carnarvon.
For more information on this wonderful initiative and to read the notes of thanks from the Carnarvon growers, see booklet below.
