Exeter Foodbank is one of 3 Exeter-based charities selected to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund https://causes.coop.co.uk/

Every time Co-op members buy Co-op branded products (and use their membership card) in a central Exeter store, 1% of their spend will be given to a local cause, including the Foodbank, if you choose us!

This scheme, which runs until March 2017, is much-needed just now. As the number of people referred to EFB increases, the ‘hidden costs’ involved in meeting demand are going up too. Every penny raised  will help us to put food on the table for local people in crisis.

The more support we get, the more funding we could receive! So if you’re a Co-op member, and your nearest Co-op store is in Sidwell Street, Queen Street, Fore Street or Pennsylvania Road, please log in to your membership account and choose EFB. (From December we understand people can support us regardless of where they live and shop.) If you’re not a Co-op member, and want to go the extra mile, you might even want to consider joining at http://www.coop.co.uk/membership/  to support us.)

Thank you very much for all your support – and please spread the word!
