How does it work?
Their shop is like a supermarket. The food and groceries are in aisles and there is a large selection to choose from. You may not see the same variety
as a supermarket. But they always have the staples like pasta, rice, meat and fruit and vegetable.
They mostly charge by weight rather than per item.
At Perth Airport the cost is $1.25/kg for grocery items and 20 cents/kg for bread, milk, fruit and vegetables.
At their regional branches, the cost is $1.50/kg forgrocery items and 50 cents/kg for bread, milk, fruit and vegetables.
Mobile Foodbank the cost of hampers are $10 for a dry goods hamper with everyday essential items, $5 fruit/vegetable and $15 frozen hamper (meat
and frozen items)
They also have frozen meals, meat packs and other bundles that are priced as marked. There may be limits on some items. There is a 70kg maximum
limit per week.
When you have finished shopping go to the checkout. A volunteer will sort your groceries to weigh them. You must pay by EFTPOS ONLY. Please
note they do not accept cash.
