The Community Food Shed is behind 31 Fore Street - look out for the signs!

It’s free to take food from the Shed. Please do!! It is there to reduce food waste by distributing it to the community from supermarkets, producers and growers who would throw it away otherwise. It is also open for donations . Click here to find out more. 

It’s also open for donations - there’s a fridge for perishables and shelves for dried goods. Only food in it’s original packaging, not home cooked or homemade please, as we need to be clear about use by and best before dates, as well as labelling for allergens.


Thank you to all our volunteers and friends for 659 Acts kindness during 2020

About Us

Mental Health Matters



There is a network of volunteers across our community and the sorts of things we can help with include shopping, collecting medication and dog walking, as well as a friendly phone call. Click here to contact your Zone

Co-ordinator.  They will put you in touch with someone who can help. The health and safety of everyone is paramount.  Please note that anybody visiting your home as part of Bradninch Together will arrange the visit in advance and will carry ID. 


Volunteers will not come into your home when visiting.  Please let us know when calling if you or anybody in your household is suffering from Covid-19 so that arrangements can be made to minimise risk.




If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact either your

Zone Coordinator or the Steering Group.  The Steering Group is also happy to receive general ideas or comments, though please see below about how to contribute to the website.
