HUNDREDS of snacks have been bought for the Salvation Army to feed under-privileged people in Scarborough.
The noodles and soups were paid for by a £250 donation by the Rotary Club of Scarborough.
Sainsbury’s then added £50 to the fund.
Nigel Wood, who is president of the Rotary Club and a life-long member of the Salvation Army, suggested the donation after he noticed a large increase in the number of people asking the Salvation Army for help.
“It’s getting to huge proportions,” he said. “The Salvation Army had a food cupboard and it was almost bare.
“I think it’s a sign of the economic climate. A lot of agencies are having their funding withdrawn.
“We thought the food donation would be a particularly good way to serve the community.
“The Salvation Army is very grateful for any support. I’d like to say thank you to the Rotary Club and Sainsbury’s.”
