Homeless In Teignbridge Support (H.I.T.S.) Food bank

Homeless in Teignbridge Support (H.I.T.S) works with homeless people and those in crisis and need in our community, throughout Teignbridge and in the more rural areas.

There are three main types of packs we distribute

  • Food pack
  • Household crisis pack
  • Toiletry pack. 

In times of crisis and need, we can also provide baby packs, pet packs, and moving-in packs.

From 1 April 2016 we have been running the HITS Support (HITSS) Scheme, providing a small amount of credit on electric and gas meters in an emergency, emergency clothing and necessary travel for those in absolute need. Necessary travel might include a case when it is imperative that a client has to attend an important meeting, eg with Job Centre Plus or the Newton Abbot Citizens Advice Bureau.
