Food at CHAT

We believe that everyone should have access
to essential food, regardless of their circumstances 
and we are here to help.


Our Foodbank and Pantry are there to provide a helping hand when things get tough, offering both free and affordable food.  

We will also see if there is anything else we can help you with and we may be able to let you know about other help that is available.  The foodbank is here to support you when you need it - but we hope to help you so that you don't need it where possible. 

How can we help?

I have no food

If you have no home and you are sofa surfing or homeless come and see us. We can help practically (shower, clothes washing) and also look at how we can get you some help with your situation


I can't afford food prices

Eviction proceedings are complicated and stressful. Bring in your paperwork and we can look at what is happening and support you through the next steps

I need occasional help

It can be hard to find housing at the moment, but we can help you work out how much you can afford, and look for something suitable. 

I don't live in Tiverton 

If your home is in poor repair we can advise you on what you have a right to expect your landlord to do, and we can also help you with some energy advice as well. 

I would like to donate Food

If you don't live in Tiverton but need help with food provision, please use the map to find your nearest provision.

 We know that coming to a foodbank for the first time can be difficult but we are here to help and we want to make it as easy as possible.


When people visit us for help with food we ask you to register at reception and you will be offered a drink while you wait. 

We are not here to judge but we will need to ask some questions. There are for our records and  to make sure that you get the help you need. These questions will usually be about:

  • Your name, address and who lives with you

  • What cooking facilities you have

  • How much you can carry today

  • The things you like and dislike and whether you have any allergies
