Worthing Foodbank is a Trussel Trust Foodbank run by Redeemer. We collect and distribute basic food items to support people in times of crisis. Worthing Foodbank has fed several thousand people in Worthing and the surrounding area.
Due to the latest government restrictions, we are operating a delivery service from Thursday 5th November. Please do not come to the Foodbank centre from this date. To receive a delivery, you will need to be referred by one of our agencies, please see details below.

If you are in financial crisis and live in England or Wales, please call 0808 2082138 for free (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm) to talk confidentially with a trained Citizens Advice adviser. They can help address your crises and provide support to maximise your income, help you navigate the benefits system, and identify any additional grants you could be entitled to. If needed, they’ll issue you with a voucher or referral so you can get an emergency food parcel from your local food bank.

What is Foodbank?

Foodbanks help people in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. We help fill the gap between a crisis and long-term help by partnering with over 80 registered care agencies in Worthing who distribute our vouchers. These vouchers can then be used to receive a three-day food supply.

Who is it for?

We feed people from all walks of life and anyone can hit a crisis at any time. We see people who are working, on a low income, who have received an unexpected bill, people losing jobs who are waiting for benefits to be processed right through to domestic violence, debt and sickness.

Ways to help.

There are many ways you can help out outside of donations.

Financial donations.

For Worthing Foodbank to run successfully we need to receive regular contributions, whatever their size! Donations are gratefully received. Please click the link below to make a one-off donation, or set up a standing order. If you are happy for us to claim Gift Aid on your donation, please also fill in the Gift Aid declaration on the form.

Food donations.

 Due to the current Covid-19 situation we will not be doing supermarket collections. The safest way to help us get food is to donate financially which allows us to buy food directly from large warehouse companies. If you already have food to donate, pre-packaged and canned goods may be left at one of our collection points:
- Town Hall receptions desk (Weekdays 9am-5pm)
- The Dome Cinema (Closed Nov 5th - Dec 2nd)
No other food can be accepted.

Volunteer.

We would like to thank all the wonderful people of Worthing, who have stepped up and offered to volunteer for us. The response has been amazing and we have more than enough people to help us now.
