WESTON Foodbank is holding another collection day at Morrisons in Locking Castle on October 26.
Volunteers will be in store from 10am-5pm asking shoppers if they would like to donate one item to help a family in crisis.
The charity has given out 24 food boxes to people in need so far and thanks to generous members of the community and harvest collections the charity has 3.5 tonnes of food in stock ready to dish out to families.
Fourteen agencies across town have been giving out food vouchers and referring people to the foodbank and the charity is keen to work with more organisations to enable more people to access the service.
Weston Foodbank is now open every Monday and Friday from noon to 2pm. The charity is also hoping to open up on Wednesdays at the same time before Christmas.
