The Bishop of Plymouth will be opening Brixham Food Bank's new premises on Brewery Lane next week.

The Rt Rev Nick McKinnel will be in Brixham to meet many of the volunteers who serve Brixham Food Bank as well as having a look around its new home on Monday, November 1.

Moving to more suitable premises marks a new start for the food bank as it moves to formally become a charity.

The new premises has extra space which will allow the organisation to provide additional services to support clients as it gears up for an expected rise in demand due to cuts in Universal Credit, rising food prices and an expected increase in fuel poverty.
