Drake Circus and Plymouth Food Bank

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

In 2022-23, Plymouth Food Bank provided food and essentials to over 13,200 people – that’s roughly 118,800 meals.

Since January 2023, the team have seen an increase of around 64% in demand for their services.

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