is located in Weymouth Baptist Church, 18 The Esplanade, Weymouth, and is open on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10.30am and 12.30pm
Started by Lily and Bob Mockett in 2012, the work of the food bank has grown rapidly over the time since. Supported by most of the churches in the town, several of the large supermarkets, and many organisations and individuals, who supply us with gifts of food, toiletries and donations.
The food bank is open from 10-30am-12-30pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Vouchers to obtain a food parcel are available from Doctors, health visitors, schools, drug and alcohol advisory offices, Soul Food and the Lantern to name a few. Vouchers cover enough food for three days and we would hope that clients would not need more than 3 vouchers except in exceptional cases.
820 people were fed in that first year; in 2015 we fed an amazing 2,547. Sadly, the need for this help is growing rapidly. We praise God for His constant provision so that we can continue to meet the needs of those in need.
