In the current climate, foodbanks are soaring and demand is far higher than supply.
Over 1,000 hungry people have been fed by Stroud's Foodbank in the eight months it has been open.
Latest figures from the charity, which provides emergency food boxes from its depots in Stroud, Dursley and Stonehouse, show that by mid-August, it had fed 1,046 people. Almost half were children.
People in need have to be referred by social services or crisis centres, and are given vouchers which they can exchange for food. The service is proving so popular, that the food bank is looking for bigger premises.
The recent harvest festivals has led to bumper donations of food from churches but Will says that they need more.
The Stroud Foodbank is supported by volunteers.
