Crediton Food Bank is a ‘Christians Together in Crediton’ initiative, providing emergency food for local people in crisis.

Today in Crediton and its outlying villages there are families struggling to put food on the table. For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis – redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill can mean going hungry. Every day, parents are skipping meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying the rent and eating.

The food bank is run entirely on a voluntary basis and operates from the Manse - next door to the Congregational Church. You will find the staff caring and non-judgemental. Also, they will treat your needs with the strictest of confidence.
