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.
The Weight Management Service in Plymouth is a specialist service for people who are very overweight and would like support to lose weight. To access the program you must be a Plymouth Resident with a BMI of over 40, or over 35 with other medical problems.
