About us

Caring and compassionate support for those in need within our community

Lyme Regis Foodbank aims to relieve poverty in the local area through the provision of nutritious food and other basic amenities.

People hit by an unexpected crisis such as redundancy, benefit delays, illness or even unexpected bills can find themselves unable to afford food. Parents skip meals to feed their children while some are forced to choose between paying the rent, heating their homes or eating. 

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry, so provide emergency food and support to local people in urgent need.  

Our approach is friendly and welcoming, offering our clients dignity and understanding in an entirely non-judgemental environment.

We aim to relieve that immediate pressure by providing food, but also offer additional support to help people break free from poverty. This could include things like debt advice or benefits guidance by putting people in touch with appropriate support services. 

The foodbank relies entirely on the generous support of our local community.

Lyme Regis Foodbank is run by LymeForward, a Community Interest Company No 10381732.
