|Welcome to Okehampton FOODBANK
A community project fighting poverty at its point of need.
Foodbank Drop-in at Okehampton Baptist Church
Friday 10.00 – 12.00
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. We help individuals and families in crisis by providing free emergency food, while care agencies help long term.
This project was originally pioneered by the Trussell Trust, and Okehampton Foodbank was launched by Okehampton Baptist Church in 2008.
During 2013 we parted company with the Trussell Trust, and became an independent foodbank. It has since been run by volunteers from the Okehampton Community through Okehampton Baptist Church.
"No matter who you are we are here to help"
