The food bank is a local store of non-perishable food operated by Churches Together in Ottery (CTiO). Food is made available to those who are in ‘food crisis’. That is, they have no food and no money with which to buy food.
We do not supply food on direct request from the public. Need is assessed by professionals from local agencies and local church leaders. They issue vouchers that entitle the bearer to food sufficient for their household for three days.
If you, or someone you know, need help you can ask social, health, education or church workers in Ottery. They will be able to give you a voucher or contact us on your behalf.
