The Food Bank in Beaminster is located in the Prout Bridge Building, 6 Prout Bridge, Beaminster DT8 3AY and is an invaluable source to many. They now open 10am – 12noon on Mondays and Fridays every week.
Those who need to use the Food Bank can get in contact via telephone: 07434 654 652 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange to collect a parcel. You do not need a referral – but it helps! If you have been referred, you’ll be given a voucher – which you should take to your nearest foodbank. There, your voucher will be redeemed for 3 days worth of nutritionally balanced food.
They are still taking donations which are always needed and very welcome. donation boxes can be found at:
- Beaminster Pharmacy
- Yarn Barton Centre
- Prout Bridge
Vouchers are accepted at Nick Tett‘s butchers and Fruit and Two Veg. Delivery can be arranged in emergencies.
They thank you so much for your support and do please encourage those who are in need to contact them. They provide fresh food and free groceries. They are fully stocked and ready to help. 🙂
Food Banks normally provide non perishable foods unless stated otherwise and will try to tailor if possible any special dietary requests e.g. vegetarian. Please note: Food Banks are not a long term solution. They are there to help in times of crisis.
