“Come bank with us you won’t need money,
Just tins of food to feed our tummies,
We don’t ask for much just a helping hand,
For our friends in need across the land.”

Verse 1: Donating

“Take a look in your cupboards to see what you find,
Spare tins of food all tucked in behind,
Take a walk up the road it will make you feel good,
Donate to the food bank, you know you should!”

Verse 2: Types of food

“Tins of beans, cans of soup they’ll have the lot,
These tasty foods really hit the spot,
If the food will last for a long, long time,
Donate to the food bank, you’ll feel just fine!”

Verse 3: How it helps people

“You might be wondering, why should I give?
But it really does help people to live,
Keep people healthy, strong and warm inside,
Donate to the food bank, and feel a sense of pride!
