The Sid Valley Food Bank provides for people in Sidmouth, Sidford, Sidbury and adjacent villages. Other Food Banks are available for those outside this area; select Other Food Banks from the menu for details.
We operate from the Unitarian Chapel, All Saints Road, Sidmouth. See Contact Us for a map.
During the school summer holidays, opening hours for referred client collections will be Fridays between 1.00 and 2.00pm. For school meals clients it will be between 2.00 and 3.00pm.
Food is distributed using a voucher system. Any of the agencies below can be contacted, your need will then be assessed and a voucher issued. Clients will then need to take the voucher to the Food Bank and exchange it for food during opening hours. In the case of emergency, some agencies hold an emergency food box.
