The long days and cold nights of winter may be gone, but people across the state still struggle to afford essential food and personal care items.

City Mission’s Spring Food Drive is being held across the North and North-West today and tomorrow (Friday 15th September), and encourages people to purchase an extra item in their weekly grocery shopping to donate to those in need.

CEO of City Mission Stephen Brown talks with Martin Agatyn about the initiative.
