Food and nutrition
Eating a healthy balanced diet can help to prevent diet-related illness and will give you all of the energy and nutrients you need keep active and maintain a healthy weight.
The Plymouth Food Aid Network (PFAN) is a collaboration of food support providers, local growers, distributors, retailers and organisations all seeking to end food insecurity across the City.
We don't think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That's why we provide three days' nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis.
We support a nationwide network of food banks and together we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the ways to support our overall health and well-being, but it doesn't always feel easy. Livewell Southwest has a team of specialists who provide free advice and support to local people about how to improve their diet and achieve a healthy weight for them.
