Demand at Liskeard and Looe's Foodbank is rocketing.

So far this year 350 families have gone to it for help. Now bosses are making a plea for more donations.

They will be collecting at Morrisons in Liskeard on Saturday.

Project manager David Berry said, "There are people out there who are really struggling. We've had some very harrowing situations of families who haven't eaten in a couple of days. The recession hasn't really yet affected everybody and it's going to get worse and we've got to gear ourselves up.

"At the moment it's a very hidden problem. We're finding that there are a lot of people out there who are in their houses often with the door shut and the curtains closed and they're trying to get by without very much at all."
