The cupboards are starting to look a little bare at the Salvation Army Food Bank in Prince George.
Captain Neil Wilkinson says the situation is annual, as donations usually peak in March and taper off until September.
He says the number of people accessing the food bank sometimes drops off in the summer, but not so this year.
"We haven't noticed any change, any increase or decrease. However, again, when you've got limited resources, it's always interesting to try to balance out the handouts so that the food bank is able to provide service year round."
Wilkinson says the biggest need is for non-perishable items that are high in protein, such as canned meat and milk.
Donations can be dropped off at the Salvation Army on Ospika Boulevard.
