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.

Financial donations

Foodbank relies on receiving regular donations to be able to run successfully.

Food donations

Food donations are used to provide three days of emergency food to people in crisis.

Volunteer

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.
