Who We Are & Our Services

Bude Food Bank supports people in Bude and the surrounding areas. The charity was set up to help people who are facing the effects of adverse poverty.

We provide emergency food parcels and help those in need. If you’re struggling financially or emotionally, we can point you in the right direction to get the help you want. If you have any other needs or questions, please contact us to see how we can help.

Bude Food Bank works with the local community, businesses and churches to raise vital funds and the donation of food and other items to help local people and families in their time of need.

Financial Advice

If you’ve got loans that have got out of hand, are struggling to make ends meet, have queries about a loan that you’re not sure whether to take out, or just need some help in managing your finances, we have launched a new CAP scheme (Christians Against Poverty) as part of Bude Foodbank Plus, offering people the opportunity to get financial advice and support through 1-1 sessions.

Check out the video below to find out more about CAP and the work they do.

To talk through anything financial that you might be facing, please call 08003 280006 & speak to Jane Libretto – our local CAP Debt Centre Manager.
