Morrisons supermarket has started a collection box in support of Melton’s Storehouse at the Fox food bank.
The town store has asked its shoppers to buy and donate an extra item of food and place it in a container at the front of the store, near the tills.
Store community champions Rob Morrish and James Mayfield said: “Our customers are very supportive and its nice to be able to give something back to help the vulnerable in the community.”
Storehouse coordinator Francesca Sirel said: “Storehouse is grateful to Morrisons who have supported us with food donations and vouchers for food for the last 21 months.
“Without the help of so many organisations and individuals we would be unable to meet the needs of many vulnerable people who are struggling, often in very difficult circumstances.”
Storehouse at the Fox, which operates out of the old pub in Leicester Street, is run by Melton Vineyard Church and supported by Churches Together. It helps those in immediate need of food, clothing and other essential items - supplying emergency bags of high quality, non-perishable food and toiletries to disadvantaged local people.
