Hayle Foodbank – Support for local people in need.
Phone 07713 171495
Hayle Foodbank has been operating since 2012 from Hayle Methodist
Church supplying food to households in short term need in the Hayle /
Connor Downs area. We are a relatively small operation, only operating on
a Saturday morning and supplying between 20 and 45 households a month.
We run entirely from food and money donations from individuals, churches,
schools and businesses in the generous and caring local community.
All food has been donated by the fantastic and caring Hayle community
either directly or through money donations.
