foodbankmapOFFICIALLY LAUNCHED in September 2012, this food bank project is being run in conjunction with local agencies to identify and serve families in crisis.

Totnes Food Bank covers Totnes and the immediate surrounding area (see map, right). If you live outside of this area and need help then they can advise you where to apply. (Food banks are also established in Torbay, Kingsbridge,  Dartmouth, Newton Abbot and – from January 2013 – Ivybridge).

Enquiries:
 telephone 07854 629502

Standard collections: To make it easier for our congregations, Food Bank donations can now be left at St Mary’s Church, at the 8am or 11.15am services. Food left at other times will also be picked up and delivered. (Market Place Ministries continues as a collection place.) 

We have now added cleaning materials and toiletries to the items which can be donated.

foodboxSuitable food donations could include:

  • Rice, pasta, noodles, cereals and other dried foods
  • Tinned soups (likewise tinned meat, vegetables and puddings)
  • Sugar, tea, coffee, squash, UHT drinks, biscuits
  • Other non perishables.

Tips: When you see a “Buy One Get One Free” – donate the free one! Or just buy an extra item anyway, everytime you go shopping.

NOTE: Fresh produce should be taken instead to the Drop In.

Other ways to help

People (volunteers) needed with time to spare. As well as  needing finance and produce, the Food Bank needs volunteers, fridges / freezers and coolboxes, and – most of all – a van. If you can help, please call 01803 840354.


Donating money to the Food Bank / Drop In / Transition Club
If you wish to donate to any of the above please make the cheque payable to GIVING BACK and pop a note in with your donation designating the particular area that you wish to give you gift to.
Then either post it or pop it in to Market Place Ministries, 2a Burke Road Industrial Estate Totnes TQ9 5XL.
If you wish to give cash it would be wise to donate in person during the Drop In open hours Monday – Friday 9.45am to 12.45pm, when we can always guarantee that someone will be there.. Once again, pop in a note along with the donation designating the gift. Thank you!
