Welcome to the Newquay Foodbank
The inability to support yourself, or your family, with the basics to survive such as bread, milk and other essential foods, in 2019 is an appalling reality for many.
The Newquay foodbank seeks to be the source of light and hope to those who have fallen on hard times, whether it is through the loss of a job, injury or other matter. Newquay Food bank works with other supporting agencies to locate those who need us not just in Newquay but in many surrounding areas.
In the 2019/20 FY we gave out 1522 Food Parcels to those in desperate need. This includes basic essentials, such as fruit, veg, eggs, milk and shelf food to support that individual or family for 3 meals a day for 3 days. based on the average cost of this it works out at approx. £40,630 worth of food last FY. This cost is greatly reduced by the amazing donations we continue to receive in at our donation points around Newquay and the surrounding areas.
In 2020 we became a member of the Independent Food Aid Network, spreading the message concerning the very real food crisis Nation Wide and helping us to work hand in hand with other similar charities to tackle this problem head on.
Thank you all for your ongoing support!
