General and background

The Exmouth Community Larder is an initiative of Christian Churches in Exmouth, including the Salvation Army from whose premises we operate.

No food in the house, no money to buy food..... a food emergency for which we in the Exmouth Food Bank are here to help, including people self isolating or who were "shielding".

Requests may be accepted direct from an individual as well as from a referral agency - make sure to include the full address, number of people in the household and a contact phone number.

For support on other issues, contact Citizens Advice using the links on the left.
