Liskeard and Looe Foodbank

How do we help?

Liskeard and Looe Foodbank is part of a national network of foodbanks, giving out nutritionally balanced emergency food to people in crisis.

12.4 million people in the UK live below the poverty line.

When you have no financial safety net, a sudden crisis, such as bereavement, benefit delay, redundancy or illness, can leave you unable to feed yourself or your family.

Such situations can quickly deteriorate, leading to relationship breakdown, house repossession or worse. Liskeard and Looe Foodbank works to support people who find themselves on the edge of disaster.

Can you help?

  • Donate food to the food bank
  • Give your time as a volunteer: Help out at one of our supermarket collections. Sort and pack food at the foodbank centre. Help out at our harvest collections.
  • Give a financial gift towards our running costs: A one off gift or through a standing order. Alternatively you might want to leave us a legacy through your will.
  • Fundraise: Put on an event. Get sponsored - do something exciting!

Referral Procedure:

By agencies holding red vouchers - agencies in Liskeard, Looe, Torpoint and throughout the county hold foodbank vouchers. These are handed to those they assess are in crisis. The red voucher then entitles person to collect food from volunteers at a distribution point or to have food delivered.
