Why become a member?

WASCA prides itself on providing services to empower you and your school community to provide a healthy viable food service in the school. And just like we support you we also require your support to continue to work in this space.

WASCA has nearly 30 years of experience and our admiration and appreciation for the diversity of school canteens in Western Australia continues to grow. We value our members and ensure they feel like a unique part of our large extended family as we support each other on our individual journeys.
