Food parcels are provided via a voucher scheme. Each food parcel provides food for up to seven days. Vouchers are available from the CAB in Okehampton and other supporting agencies. Food parcels are delivered to your door or can be collected on a Friday morning 10am – 12noon from the Baptist Church. On a Friday morning trained Volunteers at the Foodbank can issue parcels but we prefer to use local agencies
In addition to the CAB, other professionals or recognised charitable groups such as a social or support worker can often issue you with a voucher. If you have a child at a local school there may be a member of the staff that can help.
The foodbank aims to support people in a crisis and we usually only provide food for initially three weeks, but will consider longer until benefit payments are made.
If you can’t get to Foodbank on a Friday morning please e-mail us with your details Okefoodbank@gmail.com and we will try to help.
