St Austell Foodbank

Published: 30 April 2020

We are aware that this month maybe the first in which some households don’t get their usual pay packet. Whilst not a long term solution, St Austell Food bank can help provide food for around 2 weeks if needed. Universal credit should be available to people who are out of work – applications are made online. St Austell Foodbank do cover the area around St Austell i.e. as far as Gorran/ Mevagissey/ St Ewe/ St Mewan/ Carlyon. They have introduced a new e-referral system, and have also now have delivery 3 times a week. If you can’t afford food, you can call 0808 2082138 for free (open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm). You’ll confidentially talk to a trained Citizens Advice agent and, if needed, they’ll issue you with a food bank voucher. Please note this number is for people who do not have enough money for food.
