Previously known as Blandford Food Bank+, the Food Bank has now expanded to include a community larder, larger community cafe area and much more.
We are located in Blandford town centre and exist for those living in Blandford Forum and surrounding villages.
Nourish is a vibrant, practical community space, with kindness and understanding at the heart. We have care organisations keen to help you, and a finance team ready to walk alongside you through financial challenges.
All are welcome – why not pop in for a hot drink and homemade cake in our new cafe, meet new friends and have a chat with our lovely volunteers. Unburden yourself, pause and have a moment of quiet to escape the worries of the day. Find out more about our Community Larder and Food Bank below.
