Important Information to Help Support our Community

The Foodbank in Penzance has been supporting our local Communities for a number of years now, and each week the collection boxes in the Co-Operative , St. Just and the Costcutter Store in Pendeen contribute to the food, household and personal items that are distributed in this part of West Penwith.

For the generous support of our community in maintaining the Foodbank, very many thanks.

Recently it was realised that the difficulty and cost of transporting food, and other essential items for a family, from Penzance to out-lying areas such as St Just and Pendeen may be deterring people from asking for support from the Foodbank.  To this end, we would like to make sure that people know that they can ask for Foodbank goods to be delivered to them.  They will be asked to ring the Foodbank number and give their order and this order will be delivered to their house, and their vouchers collected. We regret that it’s not possible for our car drivers to take people to the Foodbank to collect their food for insurance reasons.

If you need support from the Foodbank please don’t hesitate to call 07950 159841, and someone will explain how it all works and what to do next . If you are in crisis the Foodbank responds very quickly.
