People in Huntingdonshire are being reminded to reach out to their local foodbank if they feel they are struggling as lockdown eases.
St Neots Foodbank have distributed hundreds of food parcels during the coronavirus pandemic to help people in the area.
Although the base is not in desperate need of donations, they would like liquid soaps, washing up liquids and hand sanitisers to add to parcels.
Adrienne Dunn, from the foodbank, said: “We would like to thank people who have donated food or money and their contributions mean we are currently able to feed those who come to us for food support.”
During 2017, the foodbank, which is part of the Trussell Trust, supported 857 adults and 448 children.
