Foodbank WA school breakfast program



The Foodbank WA school breakfast program benefits the community by providing a nutritious breakfast for high risk students and communities in Western Australia (WA).

Foodbank WA supplies quality School breakfast program food products to registered schools free of charge, such as canned fruit, wheat biscuits, oats, and more. Where possible, schools are able to access fresh produce, including bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh milk and yoghurt.

An evaluation of the initiative found that the program positively contributed to a number of factors, including:

The program has grown from 17 schools in 2001 to over 430 schools, across metropolitan, rural and remote Western Australia.
