We are thrilled to have launched our Christmas appeal for 2017. FareShare Sussex’s ‘More than Meals Christmas Appeal‘ highlights how although we are focussed on providing food which is turned into meals for people in need by our brilliant charity members, with your support we are able do lots more than that-
Help the environment by preventing perfectly edible food from unnecessarily going to waste.
Help disadvantaged adults through our volunteer programme, offering accredited training and on-the-job work experience in a positive and friendly environment.
Help our charity members attract new clients and provide even better services through redirecting savings on their food bill to their core services.
And the food we provide does not just provide the sustenance of a nutritious meal to the thousands of people eating it every week across Brighton and Sussex.
Our members tell us that FareShare’s food also helps to:
- bring people together over shared meals, reducing social isolation.
- educate through cook and eat sessions, developing important life skills.
- engage clients with other services, helping break the cycle of poverty
- improve overall well-being, making people happy as well as satisfied through being able to access foods that could not be provided without our service.
We are extremely proud that we can do this through our service. But we rely on the support of the community to keep our work going strong.
Please consider supporting us this Christmas by giving what you can spare to our appeal and helping us spread the word.
Thank you and Merry Christmas.
