OUR VOLUNTEER STORIES

Volunteers make the world go round, especially here at Foodbank WA. Each of our volunteers is one in a melon and thanks to their support, we were able to distribute 3.7 million kilograms of food all around Western Australia in 2021.

Featured here are just a few of the incredible volunteers who make a difference in our Perth and regional branches. Read about how they make a difference and find out how you too can volunteer with your local Foodbank branch.

Volunteering is a great opportunity for people to connect with others and make life-long friends. Act Belong Commit recognises the benefits of volunteering to keeping mentally healthy and we’re proud to be partnered with Act Belong Commit.

Gillian

For Gillian, working together with a group of like-minded volunteers is really rewarding and also a great place to meet new and lovely people. “I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people, it works both ways. Doing a few hours’ a week is beneficial to everyone concerned.”
