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

We have had a fantastic response in relation to Christmas gifts, many of which have been beautifully wrapped and categorised, therefore we feel that we have sufficient gifts to give out to our clients all the way through to when we close for Christmas and we are incredibly grateful to you for your kind hearted donations, we would therefore suggest that we ask you to focus on food items and toiletries at the moment as they will always be required.

We will continue to open until Monday 23rd December, and we will return on Monday 30th December
