LEOMINSTER'S community food larder is running out of provisions.

Demand has risen steeply since the beginning of the year, with more than 3,000 tins of food given out by the end of March.

The larder is particularly in need of tins of meat, soups, vegetables, puddings and jam, long-life milk, sugar and coffee.

All donations should be in date and can be left at the Forbury Chapel on Church Street in the mornings and at the Community Centre on School Road.

No perishable items can be accepted.
