Volunteers at a community pantry in Derbyshire have made their latest appeal for donated items.
The Loaves and Fishes Pantry Shop in Alfreton, which was set up in December 2022, provides discounted food for those struggling during the current cost of living crisis.
The pantry, which is based at Alfreton Christian Centre in Hall Street, is open weekly on Thursdays between 10am and 12pm.
A spokesman for the pantry said: “We are currently in need of milk, sweetcorn, tinned mandarins, pasta, instant noodles.
“Anything is very gratefully received, even if it’s just a few items.
“If anyone would like to give, these can be given in at the Alfreton Christian Centre on Wednesday afternoon between 2.30pm and 4.30pm or when we’re open on Thursday mornings between 10am and noon.”
The spokesman continued: “If you would like to donate but none of these times suit, The Pamper Hut on Mansfield Road in Alfreton or Grandma’s Kitchen Events on Town Street in Pinxton are also drop off points.
“If you would still like to give but none of these arrangements suit, please message and we can sort something out.
“We will also be having our food drive on Saturday, January 27, if anyone would like to donate then.”
