Charity for 2020 & 2021 – Devon and Cornwall Food Action

At the 2020 Members Meeting, the members selected “Devon and Cornwall Food Action” as their preferred Charity. Due to the limited fundraising opportunities in 2020, the Committee have agreed to continue supporting the charity during 2021.

We are a registered charity, striving to eradicate food poverty in Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall. It is an unfortunate fact that food poverty exists within the shores of the United Kingdom. There are many reasons as to why this happens and we delve into some of the issues within the website, so please take a look at the Why Are We Doing It page.
We are run almost entirely by a brilliant volunteer workforce and are constantly on the hunt to expand the team, so please check out our Volunteering at DCFA page for more information. If you could give us some of your time, even as little as 4 hours per week, then get in touch to tell us about your unique skillset and how you’d like to become one of the team…we’d love to hear from you.
DCFA is not a foodbank. We work with food producers and supermarkets to redistribute surplus food to those in need. We supply a number of services, community organisations and groups. Through their various means testing schemes produce is distributed to those that have been identified as being in desperate need to feed themselves and their families.
