A FOODBANK is appealing for more donations as the Covid-19 pandemic has seen a rise in people using the service.

The Mid Cheshire Foodbank, based in Winsford, is running low on a number of items including rice pudding, savoury spreads and tinned meat.

Cllr Nathan Pardoe, who volunteers at the foodbank, said: "We're feeding more people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Large or small, all food donations are gratefully received. Please try to drop off at a local supermarket whilst you are shopping.

"There is food available for anybody who needs it, nobody needs to go hungry."

Shoppers are asked to donate some food at supermarkets across the area, including at Sainsbury's in Hartford, Asda, Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsbury's in Northwich and Asda and Morrisons in Winsford.

Alternatively food can be dropped off at the foodbank's warehouse in Unit 14, The Business Centre, Barlow Drive, in Winsford on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am and 12pm.

For those wanting to give cash, donations can be sent to the foodbank's online at justgiving.com/midcheshirefoodbank
