|Welcome to Okehampton
community project fighting poverty at its point of need.
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 their aim is to open foodbanks all around the
country. Okehampton Foodbank was launched by Okehampton Baptist Church
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"
