Collaborative Alliance supporting those in Food Poverty – Torbay Council

To tackle this Torbay Council, who are committed to being cooperative, helped facilitate the Torbay Food Alliance, a consortium of 10 food banks and community voluntary organisations.

When the Food Alliance came together they united with a common goal, which was to ensure that no one in Torbay goes hungry during the Covid-19 crisis.

The Alliance brought together community food resources and fundraising efforts so that they could provide coordinated support to those who were, and still are, struggling to access food.
