What food to donate

Due to the kind donations and generosity of our supporters the Food Bank is well stocked at the moment.

The Salvation Army Hall, where Exmouth Food bank is housed, is currently undergoing major renovation which is restricting the volume of stock we can hold onsite. If you would still like to donate some food we would really appreciate it if you could focus on the items listed below.

Supplies we are short of this month - July 2021

This month we would really appreciate donations of the following items only : 

  • cartons of long-life milk
  • tinned vegetables (e.g. carrots , peas, sweetcorn, mushrooms)
  • tinned tomatoes
  • tinned fruit (e.g. fruit cocktail, pineapple, peaches)
  • tinned rice pudding
  • jars of pasta sauces.
