The recent Kapiti Foodbank appeal was a huge success according to organiser Dave Edwards.
He says the response from the public was excellent. They collected 250 boxes of food which was about double the amount from last year. Mr Edwards says the collection day also raised $1671 in cash donations.
He says the Food Bank appeal is organised by the Kapiti Rotary Club and is assisted by the Waikanae and Paraparaumu Rotary Clubs, adding that they are very grateful to the public and to all of those who assisted with the collection.
