..to the UK’s first surplus food hub! Our team have been improving access to nutritious organic food for more than a decade. We bring the community together to grow and glean, share and celebrate good food, and restore nature.

Food in Community partner with Devon farmers and producers to glean perfectly edible, surplus, sustainably produced food and to grow more of our own. This benefits the local community, through our network of charity partners working on the ground with disadvantaged people, including our own fresh food box scheme. Our diverse volunteer community transform these ingredients into award winning food for everyone to enjoy at our pay what you feel dining events. Food in Community pioneered the pay what you feel dining format and ours is one of the longest running in the UK. We also run workshops – to join in – follow our socials
