Help with Food

The increase to the cost of everyday essentials like energy and food is putting a significant pressure on incomes and people who have never had to ask for help before are finding themselves in a position where they need support. There are a number of ways in which the council can provide Support for residents struggling with the cost of living.

If you are in need of support to access food we have also worked with community organisations to develop this Community Food Support Map.

If you would like your group to be added to the map, please email covid19@cornwall.gov.uk

To access the map, please click on the map image below and this will open a new page in a new window. Please note the map will take a few seconds to load (and does not work on Internet Explorer).


Using the Help With Food map:

  • The dots on the map relate to a support group. By clicking on a dot you will open an information box about the support group selected;
  • Once an information box is shown you can ‘dock’ the box my clicking on the square at the top right of the box, next to the X (this will keep the box still even when you move around the map);

You have only gone and forgotten about the biggest Charity in Cornwall. Seriously?
DISC Newquay supports over 3000 from Sandy Lodge Hotel on Hillgrove road. This is shameful as we actually support you by feeding those in hotel rooms.

Hello,

If you need to food, please contact your closest foodbank and they will direct you to referral agencies that can provide you with food vouchers. You can find a list of foodbanks via this link: https://www.supportincornwall.org.uk/kb5/cornwall/directory/advice.page?id=VlnxmQ95bUc

Hello,

If you are stuggling to know where to go to access foodbank vouchers, Get in touch with your nearest foodbank either by telephone or email and explain your situation. The foodbank will be able to tell you which referral agencies they work with in your area and how you can get a voucher.

You can find more guidance here: https://www.supportincornwall.org.uk/kb5/cornwall/directory/advice.page?id=VlnxmQ95bUc

I have tried to click on getting help with food . All I have found is a link with the Liskeard /Looe foodbank info. Although it states I need to be referred by an agency of some sort. It doesn't tell me who to contact for a voucher.

I have managed to register but I cannot activate the dots on the map to see where the Larders, food banks etc are?

Thank you for continuing to use the Help with Food map. If you need any further assistance, including support relating to financial concerns, please visit: https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/helpinghand

Please note: some dots on the map represent online groups (i.e. facebook groups) offering support across their area and do not have a physical building you can visit, for example in Padstow. In these cases, please contact them directly for information and support using the contact details and web page provided.

Thank you

Good morning,
I have had 5 vouchers for the food bank within the last six months so I am no longer able to use the food bank. Due to a delay in DWP benefits we have racked up considerable debt. Please can you direct me as to where we can go?
