Beginning with a simple pot of homemade soup in 1996, Manna has become one of the leading volunteer driven charities in Western Australia serving the homeless and the vulnerable.

Some of the Manna services to these disadvantaged individuals, families and children include:

(1) Hot ’n’ Healthy Meals

These are prepared and distributed to the homeless and struggling people of Perth five days a week at an inner city park … the meals distributed include freshly made soup, a main course with a vegetarian option and a dessert.   These meals annually total:

90,000 soups with a bread roll

90,000 hot main meals

90,000 desserts

That’s over 270,000 individual servings for the hungry and homeless every year.   The meals are always made fresh every day by our large group of volunteers at the Manna Kitchen in the inner city Perth Suburb of Victoria Park.

(2) Healthy School Breakfasts

The school breakfast program provides breakfast to disadvantaged students at 20 schools.

Over 100,000 breakfasts are provided to these school children every year.


Winter School uniforms are provided for children who are cold and who do not have access to a winter uniform.

In the past twelve months Manna has provided over 1,000 winter school uniforms to students in 43 schools.

(4) Special Lunch Functions for the Elderly

Five special luncheons each year are served to the elderly.

(5) Christmas Hampers for the Homeless

These are provided to the people we provide meals for in the park at Weld Square Northbridge.

Providing freshly prepared meals, with hope and dignity to the hungry, lonely and underprivileged of Perth.
