Deb’s Story

Deb was happily running her own day care business when she fell sick and had to stop working. This changed her life instantly.

“I couldn’t recover and had to give up my full time family daycare business. I couldn’t pay my mortgage and then it meant I had to sell my house”

“If it wasn’t for Foodbank, I don’t know what would have happened to our family.”

After getting help from Foodbank WA, Deb became passionate about helping others and giving back and now actively volunteers with multiple charity organisations to help others living in poverty.

“Now I’ve been helping with rainbow group for 7 years , and for the last 2 years I’ve been volunteering with Street Friends. We feed up to 300 homeless in the city each week.”

“I was able to get enough food for a week for a very small amount of money, it was an absolute lifesaver.”
