Food Banks in Weymouth and Portland
Two separate organisations, but with a common purpose - to feed those in need
Weymouth Food Bank
is located in Weymouth Baptist Church, 18 The Esplanade, Weymouth, and is open on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10.30 am and 12.30 pm - see map.
Started by Lily and Bob Mockett in 2012, the work of the food bank has grown rapidly over the time since. Supported by most of the churches in the town, several of the large supermarkets, and many organisations and individuals, who supply us with gifts of food, toiletries and donations.
820 people were fed in that first year; in 2015 we fed an amazing 2,547. Sadly, the need for this help is growing rapidly. We praise God for His constant provision so that we can continue to meet the needs of those in need.
Weymouth Food Bank can be contacted on 07531 167465 or email.
Open from 10-30am-12-30pm on Tuesdays and Fridays.
