Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has visited and helped out at the Riverbank Court Tesco Express in Trethomas.
The food bank was organised by Tesco in conjunction with the Trussell Trust and FareShare.
Wayne David said, "I was delighted to be able to attend and, along with local shoppers, make a modest contribution to the food collection. The last national neighbourhood collection organised in July this year was a great success with 3.6 million meals being provided for people in need. I hope this collection will be even more successful".
