Please note: Village Agents no longer have access to or deliver free meals, as the Food Resilience Taskforce has been stood down.
Agents can support with putting you in touch with your local food bank and/or local food pantry.
They can assist with the referral and help you find your nearest collection point if required.
If you are struggling to afford food, we can help.
- We can organise emergency food needs.
- We can connect you with Community Groups who can supply you with meals and food boxes.
- If you are a Carer and would like a respite pack, we can arrange for pre-cooked meals for you and the person you care for to give you a break.
- Receiving food is not means tested. Proof of income is not required.
During the 2 years the taskforce operated, over 1,000,000 items of food and household goods were delivered to residents in Somerset.Watch this short film on the Somerset Food Resilience Taskforce that was in action during the pandemic
