Children from the Bell Day nursery settings in Saffron Walden have been visiting the Uttlesford Foodbank.
The visits took place between September 23 and October 4 and saw children aged from two to four hand over donations.
The donations were collected through a harvest festival attended by parents and other family members at one of the nurseries. The children baked cakes and sung a range of harvest songs.
The children were told by Malcolm Domb, who works at the foodbank, how much the donations they brought from home would help families in the area.
A spokesman for the nursery said: "Children spoke about how much they would like to do it again.
