COVID-19 Food Support In Plymouth Promotional Banner

Updated 24 March 2020

During this time we understand it may be challenging for some families and individuals to access sufficient, affordable and nutritious food. Below are some organisations and schemes in Plymouth that are providing support.

Many of these organisations also need volunteers and donations so if you feel you can help more information is available on their websites.


Plymouth Food Banks

 

Emergency food and support for local people who are in receipt of a valid foodbank voucher.

Plymouth City Council may be able to refer you to foodbank for crisis support, if you think you are eligible please contact the Council on 01752 668000 (Option 4). They are not issuing physical vouchers at the moment, instead you will be issued with a reference number that you can take along to a foodbank.
