Crediton Food Bank is a ‘Christians Together in Crediton’ initiative, providing emergency food for local people in crisis in Crediton and the surrounding villages.
There are families in our area that are struggling to put food on the table as 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. This is even more evident during this pandemic.
The food bank is run entirely on a voluntary basis and operates from the Manse - next door to the Congregational Church in Crediton. Everyone referred is treated with the strictest confidence, by caring, non-judgemental volunteers.
Crediton Foodbank also offers people support such as financial advice, referring and signposting to other agencies, including counselling, and works closely with all agencies in the area including schools. It has been providing support to children normally in receipt of Free School Meals for several years now during holidays.
To use the service: During the Covid-19 pandemic the Foodbank has become a delivery only service. Should anyone need a food parcel, or perhaps know of someone else who does, then vouchers can be obtained through the normal agencies such as doctors, schools, Citizen’s Advice, CHAT, etc.
Alternatively contact the coordinator direct by phone, text or email, details above.
Donations: Food donations can be made direct to the Foodbank during opening times or through the collection bins in Tesco, Morrison’s or the Yellow Bookshop. All current needs can be found on our Facebook page.
