Make a trip to the bank count by donating to the Newham Foodbank to help those struggling to feed their families.
Halifax on High Street North in East Ham has teamed up with the charity to be a drop off point for those wishing to donate non-perishable food to people in need.
The charity, run by The Trussell Trust, provides support and advice to help people in food poverty, a long-term problem that is affecting increasing numbers of Londoners.
Chris Mould, executive chairman of the Trust, said: “Every day we meet parents who are skipping meals to feed their children, or people who are forced to choose between eating and heating.
“We’d like to encourage everyone to give for people in crisis.”
