Organisers, backers and recipient groups involved with Toot For Tucker are all set for another community food bank drive.

Organised by Ashburton County Lions, Toot For Tucker shares donated goods between Presbyterian Support, St Vincent de Paul and Salvation Army.

Property Brokers has been involved with the project for a number of years and will once again provide advertising support and large, recyclable plastic bags for donations.

Plastic bags will be included in the Ashburton Courier on November 14.

Volunteer collectors will be honking horns and picking up bags from 6pm on the day.

Sorted items will be distributed to the needy in the community by the recipient groups.
