“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide 3 - 7 days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in a time of need. We are part of a nationwide network of locally funded foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Northern Devon Foodbank was founded in 2012 and serves the Districts of Torridge and North Devon.
