CLEVEDON and District Foodbank is closed today (Monday, May 6) for the bank holiday.

The outlet on Knowles Road will reopen on Tuesday, May 7 between 9.30 and 11.30.

The foodbank, which is seeded by the Trussell Trust, provides crucial help to those in need.

The Trussell Trust's website explains further: "We support a nationwide network of food banks and together we provide emergency food and support to people facing hardship, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

"Between April 2022 and March 2023, food banks in our network provided almost 3 million food supplies to people in crisis, a 37% increase on the previous year.

"Our network of more than 1,300 food bank centres in the UK provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food to people who have been referred, as well as support and advice to help people maximise their incomes and lift themselves out of poverty."
