INNALOO students from Yuluma Primary School and Westfield Innaloo have joined forces with Food Bank WA as part of its Donate What You Can campaign to make a difference in their community.

Taking part in the organisation’s food drive which runs throughout the month the trio hope to create awareness of the cause as well as donate to families in need.

Collection bins have been placed outside of Woolworths at Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre where residents can donate food.

Foodbank WA chief executive Greg Hebble said the organisation was delighted to be partner with Westfield with a large-scale food.

“The partnership comes at a time when food insecurity is reaching crisis point across the state,” he said.

“We currently feed over 53,000 people every month however there are still too many people being turned away for our charity partners empty handed, due to the lack of available food, so we are very grateful to receive support from Westfield and their shoppers.

“The Donate What You Can campaign is aimed at raising large scale food donations to help feed families in need across the state, and the food collected will be redistributed to help feed those who are currently going without, so it really does make a difference.”
