Our Mission & Values

Crediton Foodbank is an initiative of Crediton Foodbank Charity to support local people in financial hardship

Our Vision

To support local people who are in financial need by providing food parcels and additional support or signposting as required.

Our Aim

To provide compassionate, practical help, treating everyone we meet with dignity, whilst also challenging injustice both locally and nationally.

Our Basis

We work with people of all faiths and none, but we were originally an initiative of Christians Together in Crediton and therefore founded on Christian principles from Jesus’ words in the Bible:

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Matthew 25:35-36

Our Values


We believe that it’s not right for anyone to face poverty and hunger anywhere and especially in the UK and will do all we can to fight and stand against injustice.


We care about the people in our community and the wellbeing of the people we serve is very important to us. We will always uphold and protect their dignity.


We believe that everyone has a story and needs to be listened to. We will do our best to ensure these stories are factual and then use them to shape our service.


We encourage everyone to speak out against injustice, supporting those who find it difficult to do so on their own.


We will think ‘outside the box’ to find ways to support individuals, and to ensure that their voices are heard both by potential donors or people with influence where appropriate.
