Supporting Dover's most vulnerable

Dover Foodbank

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food to local people who are referred to us in crisis. 

For over a decade, our mission has been to combat poverty and hunger in Dover. We are dedicated to supplying three days of essential items to individuals and families across the district. Our community volunteers provide non-judgemental, respectful and understanding support with the aim of ending hunger in our town.

We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust.
