FOODBANK 2014 SCHOOL FOOD APPEAL
July 3rd, 2014
Each month, more than 55,000 Western Australian’s receive food that has been sourced through Foodbank WA – More than 50% of these people are children. The current economic climate means people who would never have imagined seeking such support in the past are turning to charity. So it’s not just traditionally vulnerable groups such as the homeless seeking food relief, but also the aged, single parents and the working poor.
The Student Council chose to support the Foodbank 2014 Schools Food Appeal this term. Registration classes were encouraged to donate designated food items such as canned or packaged food, or make a gold coin donation. Students collected 135kg of food and approximately $170.00 in donations, which works out to be a total of 525 meals for people in need. We thank you for your kind support and donations.
