Supporting the work of
In order to support our local community facing increasing energy and food costs, threatening food poverty, S. Anne’s is now working in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Food Action (DCFA) to support the residents of our locality with fresh and frozen food at much lower cost than it would cost in the shops.
Fr Simon and Bickleigh PCC act as distributors of services provided by Devon and Cornwall Food Action and therefore regret that we cannot be held responsible or liable for any shortcomings in the services provided by the company. This is because we have no involvement in the procurement, preparation or packaging of any of the items distributed. The donations indicated represent a contribution towards the massive costs of running the DCFA Charity and a small proportion for the expenses incurred by S. Anne’s Church. If you find yourself in acute need and do not have the money to make a donation then please speak with the person managing the Hub on the day and we will help.
There are two kinds of food boxes: one providing enough for a family of four for a week (£18.00) and one for a single person for a week (£9.00). The video on the right illustrates an example of what might be in the £18.00 pack.
Another example taken by a previous end-user of the service:
Alternatively you can purchase tokens in advance here or on the door (cash or card) exchangeable for a selection of items. The Hub Volunteers will let you know how many items you can get for a token.
- The tokens enable you to obtain 50p’s worth of items in a more flexible way.
This new feature from the Food Hub enables you to pre-order and pay for Tokens from this page in addition to being able to buy them in cash on the door. This means you can have total flexibility for obtain what you need from what we have available. Of course you can keep unused tokens from one week and use them on another opportunity.
To receive a basket of food cupboard items you will need to submit this form by Wednesday at 5pm. It can easily be completed and paid for on the previous Saturday. This is so the items can be collated and prepared in time for the Larder on a Saturday.
Boxes can be picked up from S. Anne’s Church on a Saturday at 10.30am. Users of the Service will not be able to access S. Anne’s until this time.
