IMG_7347FareShare Sussex delivers food to over 90 organisations across the county, which contributes to thousands of meals every week for homeless and vulnerable people.

We currently deliver within Brighton & Hove and have further routes out as far as Bognor, Crawley and Hastings where we supply to organisations such as homeless shelters, children’s centres, lunch clubs, food banks and supported housing schemes. If you are outside of Sussex visit the FareShare website to find out where else in the UK you can find FareShare.

We are expanding our service and looking for more organisations across Sussex to benefit from FareShare food.

Are you an individual looking for support?

FareShare only passes food to its member projects, not directly to individuals. If you are experiencing food poverty and need to find your nearest food bank or low-cost meal service, visit the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership’s website for lots of useful information. If you are outside the Brighton & Hove area, visit the Trussell Trust’s online food bank finder. Please note most food banks require a referral from a professional body such as a Housing Association, children’s centre or welfare agency.
