There are two Foodbanks in Bridport:

Cupboard Love, operated by the Anglicans which essentially operates on a Wednesday morning based in St. Mary's church on a sort of 'drop in and collect whatever you need' basis I believe. It has a lot of dried and tinned food but also gets nearly out of date loaves and fruit and veg donated sometimes. Contact is Carrie at cupboardlove.bridport@gmail.com or 07443596096

Hopeful Hampers is operated by Pathways to Cure, a standalone charity under the umbrella of Churches Together in Bridport and District. It operates on a referral basis much like Trussell Trust foodbanks, but with fresh produce included and food is delivered to the person's home.
