How to donate items

The Food Bank has moved to Sidmouth Youth Centre, but food can also be left at the Unitarian Chapel, Sidmouth vestry door on Thursdays between 10:00 to 12:00 noon. Alternatively, use any of the premises below for non perishable items.

For health & safety reasons, donate only food that is within their ‘use by’ date and in their original sealed packaging please. If you have fresh produce to donate, perhaps from your garden or allotment, please contact us first to arrange delivery. (Sorry, we don’t have the resources to pick or collect.)

Food can be ordered from shops via their phone or online facilities for delivery to the Unitarian Chapel, Mays Terrace, Sidmouth, EX10 8EN at the time stated above.

Please consider the alternative of a financial donation. See our Donate Cash page for details.
