More than 2.5 tonnes of donations have been given to an Aberdeen charity.
Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE) aims to tackle poverty throughout the north-east, with the food donations helping to provide 6,000 meals.
The Christmas appeal is being spearheaded by Aberdeen-based radio station Original 106.
CFINE bosses said that demand is increasing, with more than 100 food parcels given out in a day.

Dave Simmers, CEO of CFINE, said: “We are so grateful for their support in these difficult times of the year.
“Great to have the support, but we know demand is rising and the need for our services has never been higher, so if you would like to contribute to CFINE’s mission please get in touch via our website – our beneficiaries will be grateful for your help.”
The collection will be running until December 31, with the charity also distributing Christmas toys and gifts given to CFINE by members of the public.
