Can you help out with the Food Larder?

Our Community Food Larder based at the library is one of our outstanding success stories, thanks to an enthusiastic band of volunteers.

We collect surplus (unsold) food from several retailers in Crediton which is then deposited at the library for anyone to collect and make good use of.

Currently we are looking for an extra volunteer to do Thursday evening collections from the Wellparks Tesco store. This would be on a flexible fortnightly basis with dates to be agreed with the other 'Thursday person'. Collections need to be made between 9 and 9.30pm, and taken to the library the following morning.

It's a quick and simple job. If you are interested in giving this a try, please contact Jo Phillips via the link on this page, for more information.

If you would like to join the Larder gang and are free on days other than Thursday - it's not all evening jobs - we would also like to hear from you, in which case contact us at
