Be a part of something BIG

Friends of the Community Inc. run a small food organisation with 100% of profits returned to our community. We are a group of volunteers with a strong sense of community and consider ourselves one big family. We enjoy what we do and have a great time at each event we cater at, from private events to a range of community events sponsored by local government such as City of Cockburn or other community and corporate groups.

We saw a need for a food vendor that specialises in low cost food at special events and in turn returning the profits back into the community.

Our volunteers have all been trained in Food Safety. We take pride in the quality of food and customer service we provide from our HACCP certified custom food truck.

How we differ from other groups is that all the money we raise from the sales and hire fees are dedicated to our running of programs and donated to our chosen charities.

Friends of the Community Inc. hold a Charity License and welcomes donations and volunteers.

FOC don’t just donate to charities, we support the local High School with scholarships to enable the Year 11 and 12s to continue their university studies. We also support the homeless and those doing it hard.

We are proud to list The Cancer Council, Starlight Foundation and Cockburn Cadets as some of our many charities.

Our Services

Big or small, we have the capacity to service your next event with delicious fresh food and drinks and quality equipment for hire.

Food & Drinks

Whether you are after a good old fashioned sausage sizzle, or burgers and sandwiches, our food is a hit. Cool drinks including soft drinks and juice.

Coffee Van

No event is too small. We cater for small school events and park events to assist smaller groups.

Equipment Hire

We have an extensive list of event equipment for hire with no delivery or pickup fees.
