MANDURAH Community Kitchen is almost $1000 better off after Mandurah Masters Swimming Club raised $930 from a quiz night to donate to the kitchen.

The donation was in the form of food vouchers to be redeemed at Farmer Jack’s.

Community Kitchen assistant co-ordinator Kerry Vrossink said the kitchen made meals for the homeless and needy.

The kitchen at the Sutton Street hall is open Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 12.45pm.

On any day, four volunteers from a pool of 20 run the kitchen and can serve between 40 and 50 people during the morning.

The kitchen has been operating for eight years and visitors pay 50c for a meal.

The quiz night was sponsored by local businesses Classique Hair Design, Cooks Kitchen, Glass Jar, Dan Murphy, Extreme Jet Ski Hire, JakJak, Jane Brook, Kebab Mandurah Gordon Road, Miami Bakehouse, NewXpress Silver Sands, Office Works and Woodleys Central Newsagency.
