Torbay Community Helpline

Toprbay Food Alliance isn't a single organisation, but a partnership of 10 community organisations, working together for the people of Torbay. Our members are Torquay Community Larder, Paignton Community Larder, PATH Torbay, Feed A Child Torbay, Eat That Frog, Rising Moments Community Project, Ellacombe Community Partnership, Riviera Life Storehouse, YES Brixham, and Brixham Foodbank.

The Torbay Community Helpline is a one-stop-shop for access to advice, information and referral to a whole range of support in the community and beyond.
