Warrnambool East Primary School donate to Warrnambool and District Food Share

Warrnambool and District Food Share stores were boosted this month with a 160-kilogram food donation.

Four Warrnambool East Primary School leaders organised a food drive and presented the loot to chief Dedy Friebe.

School wellbeing team member Jodie Carey said they had great support from the school community and students learnt about helping others. “People have donated cans and non-perishable items,” she said. “It’s fantastic.”
