We are a community project working to serve the community and fight poverty.The Plymouth Foodbank is helping people who are in financial crisis by providing them with much needed food and also a listening ear and useful advice. The foodbank operates on a referral system whereby professionals working in education, housing, advice services, health services, charities etc can give vouchers to those in  short term financial crisis whilst they help them in various ways themselves.
