The county's seven Supervalu stores will be taking part in the appeal.

The charity food appeal is held in association with St. Vincent De Paul, The Simon Community and The Lions Club. SuperValu stores will donate in excess of €300,000 to local causes nationwide.

Rolled out across the seven SuperValu stores in Donegal from Monday, shoppers will be invited to donate any non-perishable food product, like pasta, cereals etc. from their shop to the appeal, to help with those who are less fortunate. SuperValu is making it easy for shoppers to donate to those deserving families so they don’t face an empty Christmas – just look out for the branded trollies at the entrance to the store until December 23.

Commenting, Managing Director of SuperValu, Martin Kelleher said: “Christmas can be a time that puts a lot of families under pressure. Here at SuperValu, we value the importance of giving something back to our Irish communities and helping out in any way we can.

"So, we’re asking our shoppers to get on board this Christmas and donate what they can through this worthy appeal we have set up in conjunction with our charity partners – St. Vincent de Paul, the Simon Community and the Lions Club.”
