Food bank launches Reverse Advert Calendar appeal

The Isle of Man Food Bank is appealing for help to make sure all Manx residents can put food on the table over Christmas.

The charity has launched its Reverse Advert Calendar campaign - asking people to put aside one item of food per day from Friday this week until December 20th.

All the items can then be delivered to Housing Matters, Noa Bakehouse or Port Erin Methodist Church to be distributed to those in need.

Donations suggested for the appeal include tinned goods, pasta and preserves, as well as items like shaving gel and shampoo.
