How to access food
FareShare Sussex currently delivers food to 116 organisations across Sussex and Surrey, where it is turned into meals or food parcels for some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
We deliver within Brighton & Hove and have routes out as far as Bognor, Crawley, Reigate 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 or Surrey please visit the National FareShare website to find out where else in the UK you can find a centre.
In late 2018 / early 2019 we will be expanding our service, so if you would like to find out about the potential to receive food from us and find out about the benefits of becoming a member, please get in touch.

“FareShare enables us to pass the money we save back onto our families through keeping the fees for our childcare low. It enables us to go the extra mile in ensuring that families often living on the bread line have that bit extra to help them cope.” Puffin Community Nursery
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.
