Victoria's public works department kicks off the work week Monday with the start of its 12th annual food drive, in support of the Mustard Seed Food Bank.

The drive has generated more than $300,000 worth of food in its first 11 years, including about 6.5 tonnes of food valued at $35,000 in 2010.

The public can take part by placing bags of non-perishable food items next to their garbage cans on collection day.

The bags should be clearly labelled "Food Drive."

The Mustard Seed is also benefiting from the annual Spirit of Giving campaign, launched last week at the Bay Centre.

The campaign was created in 1999 and has since brought in more than $2.7 million in food and cash donations.

The Mustard Seed is currently helping 7,000 people each month, about 25 per cent of them children. Donations to the Spirit of Giving campaign can be made through Dec. 24 on the second level of the Bay Centre. Support can also be given with a "like" for the Bay Centre on Facebook or a "follow" on Twitter.
