Slate Youth Centre is inviting people to join in the Trick or Eat event Halloween night.
People will gather at the centre (882 Prince Street) at 5 p.m. to go door-to-door collecting for the Colchester Food Bank. Participants will be provided with t-shirts, identification tags and maps.
Crystal Crossan-Zak said more people than ever need help and that means more helpers are needed for efforts such as Trick or Eat.
Last year the effort brought in almost 1,000 pounds of food and volunteers are hoping to get about 1,500 pounds this year.
Both drivers and walkers are needed, and volunteers are encourage to bring reusable bags.
