Food for Thought
From Monday the 6th September we will have 18 food bank collection points across North Devon. We are encouraging the community of North Devon to visit their closest collection point and drop off food which will then be collected after 15th October and distributed to The Northern Devon Foodbank and East The Water community Foodbank.
A list of the collection points is below.
