Many food banks are struggling to keep up with demand as the cost of food has risen in recent months.
The Nelson And District Credit Union and the Nelson Food Cupboard are teaming up to try to tackle this issue.
Tracy McGrath who is the Community Outreach Coordinator with the Nelson Food Cupboard Society is speaking ahead of a food drive which the two organizations are launching April 1.
Both groups are hoping to see their bins full of non-perishable healthy food items.
There are additional donation options available which you can access by contacting either organization.
