PUBS, cafes and restaurants are backing Bite the Wight this weekend, raising money for the Isle of Wight Youth Trust.
Businesses across the Island have signed up to support the event, agreeing to donate the takings from a designated Bite the Wight table at their venue this Saturday.
Islanders have been holding food-related events to raise money for the trust, which provides counselling support to hundred of young people each year.
Last week, school meals provider Chartwells baked special cookies that were on sale in 47 schools, with proceeds going to Bite the Wight.
Women’s Institutes have also supported the event, baking cakes in return for donations.
Eileen Monks, director at the IW Youth Trust, said: "Bite the Wight is all about bringing people together to enjoy the wonderful food we produce here on the Island."
