WASCA is a not-for-profit, non-government health promotion charity organisation based in Western Australia formed in 1994. WASCA assists canteens and other food services to provide and promote healthy choices and operate economically viable and professional businesses. We do this by empowering food services with training, practical tools, information and advice as well as working in partnership with schools and the wider community, government, food industry, workplaces and other non-government organisations.
The WASCA Executive Committee governs the organisation and act on behalf of all members. They work closely with the office team to ensure WASCA remains a viable entity meeting funding obligations and member needs.
See a brief history of WASCA published in the Spring 2019 edition of the CanTeam Newsletter, celebrating the 25 year anniversary of WASCA’s foundation.
