The WA Nationals conducted its annual food run and collected donations to provide much needed supplies to Foodbank depots.

Foodbank WA is the pantry for the welfare sector and delivers hunger relief to people throughout the state.

South West Region MLC Colin Holt said the initiative had collected about seven tonnes of food to Foodbank branches in the region during the past three years.

‘It’s for the community and looking out for people doing it tough,’ he said.

‘It is great to raise awareness of Foodbank and to encourage people to support it.’

Peel Foodbank volunteer Andrew Hives urged more people to take part in the charitable cause.

‘It is good to help those in need,’ he said.
