Make a meal of it

Canning Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

HELP­ING peo­ple go­ing hun­gry in your com­mu­nity is as easy as adding just $1 to your weekly gro­cery bill.

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 We­ber in­vited cus­tomers to join the su­per­mar­ket chain in help­ing nour­ish the com­mu­nity by pur­chas­ing a $1 to­ken.

Mr We­ber said Wool­worths was the largest food donor to Fareshare, one of the ap­peal’s co-founders.

“Since the part­ner­ship started, we have res­cued over three mil­lion ki­los of food — the equiv­a­lent of six mil­lion nour­ish­ing meals for those that need it most,” he said.

Com­mu­nity News has joined the Feed WA Ap­peal, a na­tional fundraiser that uses do­na­tions to pro­vide grants to not-for-profit groups 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.
