Exmouth Community Larder has thanked the town supermarkets who support the service.

The larder volunteers this month reported an increase in demand after a quiet May.

The larder thanked Tesco for ‘kindly’ donating two hatchback car-loads of food, and Co-op, in the Magnolia Centre, for its food donations collected by the community.

Anthony Bernard, of the larder, said: “The level of detailed organisation, whereby we had two trolleys to unload the two Tesco cars, was beyond anything planned or prayed about by our mortal volunteers.”

Donations of tins of vegetables, fruit, custard and rice pudding, pasta sauces and squash are welcome.
