The Marketplace Ministries building continues to house the Drop In Food Bank and Transition Club. Jobs are advertised weekly and training offered. They have a suite of computers for people to use and learn to use. There is a free computer course running throughout August and a range of courses are run in conjunction with the POA throughout the year.

Hot meals for the homeless are available in the mornings, but people can drop in from 9.45am to 1pm (all week) and then again from 2pm to 4 pm, Tuesday to Thursday, plus Sunday 12.30pm to 1.30pm (closed on Saturdays).
This means anyone begging on the streets has access to help throughout the week.
Andy Callow from the Drug and Alcohol Service also has an office in the Marketplace Ministries building and is available from Tuesday to Thursday (similar hours to the Food Bank).
Because so much is going on under one roof, they have renamed the facility The Totnes Connection Hub in order to make it fully welcome to everyone in need whatever their need.
• there is a Teignmouth Connection Hub, too, which Marketplace Ministries has set up with the Council there in response to a rise in homelessness, this is just a couple of mornings and is held in Teignmouth Library.


Cleaning materials and toiletries are welcome for inclusion with 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.
