A charity which helps out west London families in need has launched an appeal asking for donations of food.
The Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank provides emergency food supplies to people in crisis and relies on donations from the public to help those in need.
Now the charity, which has centres in White City , Fulham and Shepherds Bush, has put out a plea to local residents and businesses to help out with some of the items the bank is currently short of.
It is most in need of:
- Long-life juice
- Long-life milk
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned fruit
- Tinned tomatoes
- Instant mash/tinned potatoes
- Powdered milk
- Peanut butter
Daphine Aikens, CEO of Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank, said: " Demand for the service is as high now as it was at Christmas and so we have to do all we can to make sure no one goes without.
"Everyone can help, by donating just one item they can add to their shop for just a few pence, every tin or packet makes a real difference."
The local branch of the charity distributes food parcels to 150 people every week from its three centres, and in 2015 provided 4,149 three-day emergency food supplies.
The charity does not accept fresh produce and has plenty of baked beans, pasta, and tea bags in stock.
H&F Foodbank, which also provides a Citizen Advice Bureau adviser, is part-funded by Hammersmith and Fulham Council .
Cllr Sue Fennimore, cabinet member for social inclusion, said: "If you are able to support the fantastic work of the H&F Foodbank it would be gratefully welcomed as they do such amazing work helping those who are really struggling."
