Getting out into the Wheatbelt

How Arc Infrastructure helps support regional communities

Providing food relief and nutrition education in the Wheatbelt is no small task, but together with Arc Infrastructure, we’re making a significant impact. The challenge was clear – the vastness of the Wheatbelt made accessing essential provisions a barrier to food relief, but that doesn’t stop Arc Infrastructure.

Distributed by these local resource centres that act as central “hubs”, these hampers are a lifeline for families facing tough times. Each hamper provides enough support to feed a family of four for several days, making sure no one goes hungry. The community resource centres play a crucial role in identifying and addressing the unique needs of each community. 

Thanks to Arc Infrastructure’s support, all food relief hampers and transport to hubs are fully subsidised. This means families and individuals in the Wheatbelt facing tough times now have access to the much-needed food relief they deserve. 

Not only this, Arc have now expanded their support to include the delivery of nutrition education in the region, connecting locals of all ages in the Wheatbelt with our cooking and healthy eating programs.

Recently we delivered a massive seven nutrition education sessions over only five days to 125 participants ranging from school children to blissful retirees. We visited Merredin, Wyalkatchem and Northam travelling 570 kilometres to make this trip happen.

Our partnership with Arc Infrastructure and the local community resource centres is a shining example of how businesses and organisations can come together to create real change. With their support, families are receiving the help they need when they need it most. It’s all about building a stronger, more caring community – one hamper at a time.
