THE Food For All Christmas Appeal is in full swing as the charity seeks donations to help its support within the community.
The volunteer-run charity is calling on businesses and residents on the Mornington Peninsula to give generously, with the need for support increasing and Christmas often being the hardest time of the year for those in need.
The Southern Peninsula Food For All began in 1991 and this year has delivered more than 4000 food parcels with pantry staples, fresh fruit and vegetables and tinned food. At Christmas it provides toys for children who may not otherwise receive a gift.
Secretary Christine Barnes said the charity was about “local people caring for local people” and assisting the many people needing help with day to day living costs.
Cash donations are tax deductible. For information phone Christine Barnes on 0419 434 171.
