How to donate funds to support our work

Since we set up our Crowdfunder in April 2020, funds donated by the community have enabled us to provide over a million meals to people in food poverty in Torbay. These funds enable us to buy food that isn't donated, and to make sure our food parcels and meals are balanced and nutritious. We receive no government funding so we rely on grants and donations.

If you would like to support our ongoing work, you can donate via our Crowdfunder - just click the button above
