Random Kitchen

Ottery St Mary Town Council have linked with Random Kitchen to provide free meals to vulnerable people 7 days a week. They must have a microwave and a freezer. They deliver 3 days of meals at a time. Call 07980 922696.

Ottery St Mary Foodbank

The food bank is a local store of non-perishable food operated by Churches Together in Ottery in conjunction with Honiton Community Church.  Food is made available to those who are in ‘food crisis’.  That is, they have no food and no money with which to buy food. They do not supply food on direct request from the public, you'd need to get a referral from local agencies. For a referral you can contact East Devon District Council on 01395 571770.
