We offer help beyond a food parcel. Find out more about additional services and support.
As well as ensuring people don’t go hungry, our foodbank works closely with local agencies to ensure that the underlying causes of people’s financial crises are addressed. Trained signposters are on hand at food distribution sessions to chat to people in crisis and help point them to further sources of local support.
Alongside the wide range of leaflets and information available at sessions, we produce a simple guide to gaining help with different issues in Exeter, which you can download here:
Our foodbank is running a More Than Food programme. This means that we are providing additional support alongside emergency food, to help people address the underlying issues behind their crisis.
Our foodbank has specifically trained volunteers who can offer you additional help in the following areas:
- Eat Well Spend Less – our six-week basic cookery, nutrition and budget management course.
For more information about any of these projects please contact us.
