About our foodbank

Helping local people in crisis in Bodmin, Camelford, Padstow & Wadebridge and the surrounding rural areas.

“Thank you, we feel so blessed and cared for with your extreme kindness. Our┬áspirits have been lifted.”


Our Foodbanks

Our Foodbanks in Wadebridge, Bodmin, Padstow and Camelford are run by a team of dedicated volunteers. We provide emergency food to local people in crisis need via our network of over 200 referral agencies. We cover a large area of North Cornwall which includes Wadebridge, Padstow, Bodmin, Camelford and all of the surrounding rural areas.

During the last year, we have fed equivalent to 4,003 people in crisis and provided an average of 1,730 meals per week. Since we opened our doors in 2009 we have fed over 43,000 people.

We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.


What we do

As well as providing food, we can also help with toiletries, cleaning products, nappies and baby food, sanitary products and pet food. Please do just ask your referral agency for whatever you need when they refer you. The volunteers at our drop-in centres also provide a friendly face, a listening ear and a cuppa whilst you wait for your food box. We work closely with other local support services, and can help you to access debt counselling, money management courses or further support for whatever you might be facing. We can also help with a benefit/grant check and we have opened our StoreHouse Shop in Wadebridge which is our furniture re-use project.

If you need additional support with your finances, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) provides free debt help. We have advisors at our Foodbanks in Bodmin and Wadebridge. For more information, you can give us a call on 01208 815374 or visit the CAP website. https://capuk.org/

We are incredibly grateful for the funding and support received from the Cornwall Community Foundation. With their help, we have been able to continue helping local people in crisis and also means we are able to extend the services we offer within the community.
