Wirral food bank getting ready for Christmas

Community project think they'll be busy this winter.

Wirral Food Bank launched in November in 2011 and have so far fed more than 4000 people.

The project is supported by social landlord Riverside who have donated £3400, giving 32 tons of food to Wirral people in financial crisis.

A team of 100 volunteers work to collect food from people at Supermarkets who allow them to collect in their stores, sort the non-perishables into three days worth of meals, and then distribute them to people in the borough who are struggling to cope.

Jayne Branch-Murray from the Food Bank says: "The people of Wirral are really generous because they know the food is staying local and helping people in their own community".
