Food in Community’s volunteers gather more than a million portions of perfectly edible, surplus sustainably produced food annually from Devon farms and food producers. It benefits the local community, through our community food box scheme and through supplying a network of charity partners working on the ground with disadvantaged people. Meet our team and find out how delicious sustainably produced food can taste at our award-winning pay what you feel cafes and at community events. Or join us for a workshop – follow our socials for up to date information.

IMPORTANT: South Hams residents, if you are worried about money, please check out this free signposting tool. If you need food in an emergency, please contact us in confidence.

We were voted Best Ethical Food Project runner up in the 2019 Observer Food Monthly awards. As a not-for-profit community interest company, we are also proud to be Social Enterprise UK’s first ever Transformative Community Business winner. Our work is featured as an example of good practice for widespread adoption by the EcoWaste4Food initiative, set up in response to the Courtauld Commitment 2025 on food waste reduction.
