Foodbank

Affiliated to the Trussell Trust based in Salisbury, Highway Church and other Christian supporters from Penryn and Falmouth have set up a Foodbank to provide emergency food for those who find themselves in an unexpected crisis.

The most common causes of crisis are benefit delays/cuts, sickness and low incomes. Clients can be referred from their support worker, doctor and various other multi agencies within the community. However we do welcome calls from those who wish to know if they are eligible to receive food.

The Foodbank is based in Highway Church in Penryn, and run by a group of dedicated volunteers from within the community.

Distribution opening hours :

Mondays 11am-1pm

Thursday 2pm-4pm
