Sam Porter, from Lowestoft Foodbank, said: "It is brilliant and a massive help.
"Everyone is feeling the weather and pressures of dealing with Christmas, so this is a big contribution that makes a difference in everything we have to do to help people in need.
"Our demand goes up 40pc in December, so that is a big increase and while our shelves look nice and healthy right now, there is a lot of food we need to give out."
Amy Cook, from Lowestoft Police's admin team, said: "We wanted to help people in need in the local community this winter. The appeal seems to have gone down really well and we have had a lot of donations. We thought this would be a good way to get everyone involved."
