Penzance Food Bank

Churches Together in the Penzance Area recognised that increasing numbers of people in the area were truly starting to get stressed by failing "to make ends meet." So in 2011 a team of volunteers came together to create the Food Bank. A number of local supermarkets and churches allow for a Food Bank collection box to be situated around the exit tills or the back of the church. These collection boxes, having been filled by members of the general public, are then emptied twice a week by volunteers. Recipients are identified through a voucher system organised by Social Services, CAB, Schools, Doctors and Health visitors, PHA, Job Centre Plus, YMCA, Community Police, and other caring agencies. The demand on the Food Bank is increasing all the time.
