The council has already made contact with everyone expected to receive a parcel.

Some 300 parcels have already been distributed to families with children under five last week.

Depute Leader Cammy Day said: “Many families are struggling financially with parents out of work so it’s vital we do everything we can to help and these items are going to support them at a time when they are most in need.

Nappy and skincare products will be included in the packs.

“We’ve put a huge amount of resources into helping families through Free School meal payments, emergency parcels and setting up the food distribution network with EVOC and the wider community and voluntary sector.”
