Exmouth Community Larder

If you're in emergency need of food the Exmouth Community Larder may well be to help. They're the local foodbank covering Exmouth, East Budleigh, Budleigh Salterton, Woodbury, Exton, Lympstone and places inbetween. The Larder is currently delivering food parcels to people in food poverty, and doesn't ask for payment for the food they deliver. 

They can also help people who are shielding / self-isolating that are in urgent need of food, can't get it another way, and don't normally need help from the Larder. Their experience of Exmouth tells them that people who are helped will become generous donors when they can!

For help:

  • Email
  • Call 07749 322291, but the phone may be busy so email is best if possible.

Those without an address for the food parcel to be delivered to, including the homeless, can visit The Larder on Mondays and Fridays from 1.30-3.00pm.

All donations of non-perishable food are especially welcome. The Larder is also grateful for cash, cheques or BACS payments, which will enable it to restock. The Exmouth Community Larder continues as it has for 7 years and is here to help; anyone under 70 is most welcome to volunteer. To volunteer:

  • Email
  • Call 07787 882075

Much more information is available on their website.
