Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.
Over 90% of the food distributed by the Northern Devon Foodbank is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food. Last year we distributed 31 tonnes of food throughout the North Devon and Torridge Districts
Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.
