Store manager Amit Patel said the customers of Riverton had been “extremely generous” by digging deep for the appeal and helping to put food on the tables of Western Australians in need.

“It’s amazing to be in the top 10 stores in the country for the first week of the appeal and we’re grateful for the generosity of our customers and team,” he said.

Community News has joined the Feed WA Appeal, a national fundraiser that uses donations to provide grants to not-for-profits that help people in your neighbourhood.

Just 50 cents can provide a meal for someone in need.

Part of the nationwide Feed Appeal, it provides grants of up to $50,000 to help grassroots charities boost their capacity to store, cook and distribute food for struggling families, individuals, pensioners and students.

Buy a $1 Feed Appeal token at any Woolworths store during July and your donation will go twice as far – it will provide two meals for people in need.

Woolworths WA general manager Karl Webber invited customers to join the supermarket chain in helping nourish the community by purchasing a $1 token.
