Drake Circus and Plymouth Food Bank

This December, Drake Circus and Plymouth Food Bank are teaming up to boost donations across the festive period for those most in need in our community.

In 2021-22, Plymouth Food Bank provided food and essentials to nearly 8,500 people – that’s roughly 76,00 meals.

Since January, the team have seen an unprecedented increase of around 76% in demand for their services.

The UK’s foodbanks are a lifeline for many people this Christmas, and your donations are hugely appreciated.
