Foodbank Geraldton is renewing calls for donations to its Rumbling Tummies Winter Appeal.

The appeal was launched in June to help boost food stocks during what is a typically busy time of year for the non-profit organisation.

“It’s a cycle that happens every winter,” Foodbank Geraldton manager Jamie O’Brien said.

“The temperature drops, people need to stay warm, so they turn on their heating, which increases their power bill. “They then have to make a choice between paying the bill or buying food.”

Mr O’Brien said during July the Geraldton branch provided enough food for more than 65,000 meals, which had left their shelves depleted.

Breakfast cereals, soups, and hot tinned foods are needed.

To donate, visit Foodbank Geraldton at 31 Webberton Road, Webberton. Opening hours are 7.30am-2pm, Monday to Friday.
