Please Support the Provision of Food across South Devon

Food has been the most urgent need during Covid-19 and our community food providers now recognise that many people and families are facing financial hardship and the provision of food will remain a priority. Teignbridge CVS supports the South Devon Food Network, bringing 21 community food providers together to support our residents. Please help support these groups by donating – every amount counts.
