Warkworth Rotary/Lions Food Rescue is asking households to help feed the hungry by looking out for a paper bag in their mail box.
The bags are for the New World 2020 Foodbank Appeal and can be filled with groceries and dropped off at a collection trolley at the supermarket on Percy Street.
Food Rescue chair Terry Nuthall says the bags of food will be distributed to local people in need.
“Demand for food parcels is up by 40 per cent on this time last year,” Terry says.
“Requests are expected to remain at these levels due to increased unemployment in our area and an uncertain future.”
Terry thanks the community for its continued support in taking care of its own.
