Easter eggs were donated to the Open Kitchen charity's Foodshare scheme by Maidenhead Advertiser on Wednesday.
Foodshare provides food for more than 100 families living in poverty who cannot afford to feed themselves or their children.
Newspaper staff donated 58 eggs that will go towards helping the 200 Foodshare children celebrate Easter.
Maidenhead Open Kitchen founder Sue Brett said: "When you are living in poverty you don’t get the chance to think about treats.
"Kids ask each other how many eggs they’ve got and it’s really heart-breaking that a child should be left to feel different.
“It can also cause problems because they can think they have done something wrong, so this just levels the playing field.”
She urges more people to donate Easter eggs or to make a financial contribution to the charity to help families living on low income.
Visit the Foodshare centre in King Street or openkitchen.org.uk to donate.
