Supporting The Local Community

Welcome to Weymouth Foodbank

HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE IN CRISIS

We don’t think that anybody in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide 3 days nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us who are in need. 

We are a registered charity (Registered number 1190974) based on Christian principles and working in partnership with local churches. We started from small beginnings.  The Foodbank was set up by Lily and Bob Mockett, operating from Weymouth Baptist Church. It has grown rapidly since then. In response to this, we have significantly changed the way we work in 2020. The separate Foodbank charity was set up, a warehouse was made available and we started working more actively with other churches in Weymouth, especially Westham Methodist and Littlemoor – St Francis. Emergency food is now available 4 days a week at one of 3 locations. We work in partnership with the Refresh group of churches across Weymouth.

In 2020 we provided help to 3378 adults and 1639 children, an increase of 33% over 2019.  This is the equivalent of 45,153 meals.

Throughout the COVID crisis we have manged to stay open thanks to our amazing volunteers, including new volunteers who have stepped up to replace those who are or were shielding. We are careful to follow Government guidelines to keep it as safe as possible for all that volunteer or receive food.

If you need help, don’t be embarrassed to ask. We want to help the community – please get in touch.
