Maidenhead Foodshare has donated special seasonal packages including trees, decorations, crackers, food hampers, presents and gift cards for fresh meat to seven families in the town.
More than 85 food hampers, 170 toys and 28 gift cards have also been donated to others in time for Christmas.
Sue Brett said this year has seen an increase in demand for food during the festive season.
She said: "I have delivered around 15 more hampers this year and there are still some more to go.
"We are certainly giving out more food parcels and the numbers are on the increase."
The scheme was set up last September as part of the charity Open Kitchen, founded by the mum-of-four and other members of Churches Together and Maidenhead Interfaith.
