Getting help with food

The Sid Valley Food Bank covers Sidmouth, Sidford, Sidbury and adjacent villages. Other Food Banks are available outside of this area.

We operate from the Sidmouth Youth Centre, Manstone Lane, Sidmouth, EX10 9TS. See Contact Us for a map.

Food is distributed using a voucher system. Contact any of the agencies below, who after assessment, will issue a voucher. Take the voucher to the Food Bank and exchange it for food. During the Coronavirus outbreak, referrals are directly passed from the agency to the Foodbank.
