Kinross, Hillarys and Heathridge centres are collecting for their annual non-perishable food drive.

WA Curves centres have given more than 40 tonnes of food to the relief organisation since the donation scheme started six years ago.

Kinross owner Brenda MacDougall said the scheme encouraged the community and club members to work together to help the needy.

Last year Foodbank WA provided enough food for four million meals by acting as a pantry for charities and community groups.

Donations of such items as meals in a can, pasta, rice, cereal and canned vegetables, fruit, soup, fish and meat are welcome.
