Wivey Foodbank Update

Wiveliscombe is once again proving its community spirit as the foodbank says it is still receiving donations.  Thanks to the generosity of Wivey and the surrounding area, the foodbank is currently in a good position to continue providing vital services. 

Our manager, Sue Weightman, at Taunton Foodbank said: “We are so grateful that in this time of panic buying and stockpiling the people of our area are continuing to donate food to the foodbank.  We know that we will need this support more than ever over the coming weeks as more people find themselves in financial difficulties and unable to buy food.” 

The Foodbank is there to help those in financial difficulty who are referred to them by other helping agencies such as the Job Centre, Somerset West and Taunton Council, Citizens Advice, village agents, school family, support workers, Health Visitors, and some churches. 

 If people need help and have difficulty getting a voucher they should email info@taunton.foodbank.org or phone 07761624216 for further advice.

We have decided to change the way in which our clients receive their food in Wivey and have moved to a Collection by arrangement service.  This means that the distribution point at the Silver Street Centre in Wivey, will no longer be open on a Wednesday afternoon.

Please contact above for more info.

Donation boxes are in the Co-Op, Day Lewis Pharmacy and at The Manse, Silver Street. 

If you prefer to make a cash donation details of how to do this can be found on the main foodbank website: taunton.foodbank.org.uk
