Food Bank / Vouchers
Anyone can reach crisis point and that is why food banks are there to help. North Devon Food Banks are available in Barnstaple, South Molton, Bideford and Ilfracombe. Their Christmas Opening Hours are available here.
There are also smaller locations that offer the same service, such as the Ark in Lapford. our Wallinbrook location also holds a small number of emergency parcels, which can be accessed during open hours. If you need help, please speak with one of our Healthcare Professionals who can provide you with a food bank voucher.
