Dawlish Community Larder
Helping Dawlish is aware that some people are self-isolating or are still being impacted by the effects of the lockdown on their finances, families, businesses, mental and physical health and may require support. The food bank (which operated until July) has become a community larder which can support people in immediate need of food whether due to a medical need or social isolation or need immediate food assistance prior to other help being available.
The larder is funded by community donations so a referral can be done by one of the organisations involved in Helping Dawlish or ring 07584 052306 or 07711 234 948. If you need community support and are not sure who to call ring 01626 863388 or 07584 052 306. These numbers are not operated 24 hours but will be responded to as soon as possible.
Other food support
Homeless in Teignbridge Support (HITS) Foodbank provides support for people in need throughout Teignbridge. Their normal opening times are Mon-Fri, 10-4 although they do offer emergency cover at all times. The first referral can be done by yourself but they need a referral from an agency such as the Citizens Advice Bureau or Job Centre, who have assessed your need beyond the first one. The referrer must phone them on 01626 906371.
