New Mobile Social Supermarket and Foodbank Established in Torbay

A new mobile food project has been launched in Torbay to help people affected by the cost of living crisis.

The YUM project will operate five days a week from a converted minibus using church car parks and community centres with the aim of reaching people who may struggle to access existing support.

The project is being run by Torbay United (a collective of churches and other community organisations in Torbay) and Asend.SW CIC.

Torbay United was awarded £120,000 as part of the Faith New Deal pilot fund from the government announced last year. Torbay Council also helped to fund supplies for the project as part of its support for affordable food clubs throughout the bay.
