A foodbank charity based on the Isle of Man is urging residents to donate items before school 'holiday hunger' strikes.

With the end of the school term approaching this Friday, Isle of Man Foodbank volunteers are preparing for an influx of people needing resources - many of which they are running out of, or don't have.

Founded in 2013, the charity relies solely on donations, with foodbank points around the island. More information about donation points can be found here.

Tinned: Meat, Custard, Vegetables, Rice pudding, Spaghetti, Fruit, Jars, Pasta sauce, Peanut butter, Chocolate/Cheese spread

Breakfast cereals (variety pack always good!)

Squash, Toilet rolls, Kitchen rolls, Wash tabs

WE REALLY DO NEED YOUR HELP - SCHOOL IS NEARLY OUT AND HOLIDAY HUNGER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. Thank You
