As a not-for-profit organisation Western District Food Share enjoys growing support from our wonderful community.

We receive regular bulk food donations from the following partners – FareShare, Food Bank Victoria, The Midfield Group, Saputo, Fonterra, Volcano Produce and Caravan Eggs. Our weekly bulk deliveries from Melbourne are transported to our warehouse by The Midfield Group. We take this opportunity to thank all our bulk food partners for their wonderful ongoing support.

Monday to Friday we rescue food from our local Warrnambool and district supermarkets and bakeries, and we thank the following partner for their ongoing support: ALDI, Coles, Woolworths, Supa IGA Warrnambool, Port Fairy IGA, Gallo Bakery, Dennington Bakehouse and Chitticks Bakery.
Thanks also to our local chemists who donate cardboard boxes to us daily.
