“I am overwhelmed by the kindness and sincerity of all of those who have helped me and I will be forever grateful.” (Tavistock Foodbank client).

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. Last year we distributed nearly seven tonnes of food to over 600 people in need in and around the Tavistock area. More than 200 of those were children.
