Weekly Update on Cornish Foodbanks

Cornish foodbanks remain open and crucially need our support.

Cornish Foodbanks:

Foodbanks across Cornwall need supplies of all tinned, dried or long-life food items - with a typical food parcel including: Breakfast cereal, longlife milk, soup, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, tinned beans, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tinned fruit, tinned puddings, tea or coffee, sugar, biscuits and snacks. Many of the foodbanks also collect: Baby food, baby milk, disposable nappies, washing up liquid, Washing Powder, soap, Dry Dog Food, canned Dog Food and canned Cat Food.

We've pulled together an update with details of 18 of the Cornish Foodbanks to help:

  1. customers needing Foodbank parcel/support
  2. potential (both corporate and individual) donators of food/money
  3. strengthen, (and lessen), the work of the many dedicated and wonderful people behind the foodbanks

PLEASE NOTE: The mission of Foodbanks is to give out food parcels to people in need. Some of the foodbanks do not require a food voucher from a referral agency but there are others that do, with some of the foodbanks now operating an e-voucher system. We have tried to include the most up to date information about how each foodbank is operating but always please check with your local Foodbank.

There are many wonderful community food projects that people without foodbank vouchers can access and in many cases this may be more appropriate.
