EV­ERY day is DoSome­thing Day for the vol­un­teers at Food­bank Glen­den­ning.

The vol­un­teers (pic­tured left) get up early each morn­ing to help pack and send hun­dreds of thou­sands of food sup­plies across the coun­try.

Food­bank do­nated more than 60 mil­lion meals to needy fam­i­lies last year.

Food­bank NSW & ACT spokesman Tony Gatt said much of the food was dis­trib­uted in the Black­town area.

“In 2015 we sup­plied the equiv­a­lent of ap­prox­i­mately 400,000 meals (in Black­town),” Mr Gatt said.

“Our meals com­prise of a range of es­sen­tial, nu­tri­tious, gro­cery items such as rice, pasta, pasta sauce, baked beans, fruit, veg­eta­bles, milk, bread, meat and chicken.”

Food­bank re­lies heav­ily on vol­un­teers and do­na­tions.
