Watford Foodbank has issued an “urgent appeal” as it is “very low on donations”.
In a Facebook post, the Trussell Trust food bank said it was “really low” on a number of items, particularly canned meat, canned fruit, rice pudding and custard, canned soup and canned fish.
Other items on the “shopping list” are: shelf stable milk, shelf stable fruit juices, jars of spread, instant mashed potatoes, canned tomatoes, sugar packets, jelly packets, canned vegetables, jars of pasta sauce, small chocolate bars and treats.
Over 90% of the food distributed by the Watford branch is donated by the public in supermarkets.
People in need can be referred and given vouchers to receive three days of food. A freephone line is available with Watford Citizens Advice to receive these vouchers.
Donations can be made at food collection points at Asda, Tesco Extra and the two Sainsbury’s stores in Watford.

Items can also be dropped off at the Watford Foodbank warehouse at Imperial Way between 10am and 1pm, Monday to Saturday.
