Helping people struggling to put food on the table

Although Bude and the surrounding area is well known for its beautiful beaches and places to visit, what is less visible, is a large number of people who are struggling to have enough money to put food on the table.

We help families from Bude and the surrounding area who are in critical need and for a variety of reasons, simply don’t have the basic food and supplies they need each week to survive. We also help people struggling to pay their bills, provide emergency food parcels, offer counselling support and sign posting to other community services as well as provide tents and water proof clothing for those without even a roof over their head.

This year alone we have already helped over 705 adults and 533 children with vital support.

In 2019 we supported 25% more people than the previous year and we expect this figure to continue rising throughout 2020.

‘I never thought I would be in this position and it all happened so quickly. I lost my job and my partner left me all within a month. I now don’t have the basics I need to put food on the table for my 3 children.
