RUGBY Foodbank is asking schools, businesses and other organisations to help bolster supplies by donating during the harvest festival.

English Martyrs Primary School in Hillmorton donated several hundred items last week after the foodbank revealed that more food was being given out by the charity than was coming in.

The foodbank provides emergency food for people referred to the service by charities, doctors, social services and other organisations.

Diana Mansell, of Rugby Foodbank, said: “This harvest we’re asking you to help feed local people in crisis. We are asking everyone to rally round to give items such as breakfast cereals, pasta sauces, tinned veg, tomatoes, meat, rice and sponge pudding, sugar, UHT milk and fruit juice.”
