Ely Foodbank has sent out an urgent appeal for donations after a surge in demand has them running low on stock.
The foodbank, on Chapel Street, is run by a team of volunteers, and helps keep those in need fed and watered.
But due to a recent increase in demand, the foodbank is running low on stock.
Cathy Wright, project director, said: “We don’t usually experience a shortage until March and April, but it’s come a bit early this year due to an increase in demand. We’re running low on tinned items, like fruit, meat, long-life milk and rice pudding.”
Items such as cereal, jam and pasta sauces are also on the foodbank’s ‘shopping list.’
