Food Rescue

St George's students and staff assist with Food Rescue 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.

Did you know Australians waste 8 billion dollars of food each year? Food rescue collects approximately 500,000 thousand kilos of food each year which feeds over 11,000 people per week.

We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to contribute to such a worthy organisation.
