Food Bank Collection Point

Our local food bank does so much more than provide food, such as emergency top-ups for mobile phones and key meters, providing a listening ear and practical support to access help with rent, council tax arrears, claiming benefits and signposting to information.

Slapton Village Community Food Bank Collection drop-off points:

  • During Post Office Hours, the collection point is located in the reception area at Slapton Village Hall: Monday: 1pm – 3pm and Thursday: 10am – 12pm.
  • You can also drop off at any other time when using the village hall for an activity.
  • Slapton Community Shop also host a collection box.

Just a reminder on how you can help to support our local food banks:

  • Items to donate are staple food items from the shopping lists attached plus unwanted unwrapped toys or gifts suitable for birthday and other presents, or cash that can help the food bank provide meter top-ups to help with cooking and heating and increased fuel bills.
  • Should you wish to make a contribution, no matter how large or small, read the useful guides  which list what non-perishable items are required, how to donate much needed cash, (either as a one-off donation, by regular standing order or direct debit via Just Giving) and an overview of their services. (Please also read the leaflet opposite on how to donate money).
  • The food bank drop-off point is managed by Shirley Sullock and donations go to Kingsbridge and Dartmouth food banks and are very kindly being taken each week by volunteers Shirley and Will Sullock and David Goodwin. All continue to work hard to provide essential resources to our local food banks during this continuing difficult time. If you would like to help the team by taking a delivery or two, please contact Shirley Sullock on 01548 580131.

Thank you everyone for your continued support, it really makes a difference to supporting our local communities in very difficult times.
