Devon Community Foundation

Project Food has been mapping the food support activities available to children and families living in food poverty in East Devon.  This work was commissioned by Devon Community Foundation, on behalf of Devon County Council.

We were asked to find out from users of food banks and other food support:

  • whether they are happy with the support they are getting or have got, and
  • whether they have any suggestions for how the support could be improved.

We are interested in all types of food support – ie anything that helps people to have a healthier and more sustainable diet. This would include food banks or other free food schemes, community larders or fridges, and food skills support.

We will soon be sharing some of the results of this survey, so watch this space!
