Food Services

We work to make sure that nobody in Brighton and Hove has to go without food. We support people to find options that suit their needs, such as, accessing online shopping or meal delivery schemes and can refer to a food bank or affordable food scheme if money is an issue.

We provide an emergency on-the-day service for people with no access to funds and work with individuals to find long term solutions removing barriers to accessing food and shopping

We work with Brighton and Hove residents who are aged 18+ and are struggling to get food due to lack of money or other barriers.

WE'RE HERE IF YOU'D LIKE TO TALK TO US FOR ANY REASON.

ABOUT FOOD SERVICES

We make sure that some of the most vulnerable people in Brighton and Hove are supported to find long term solutions to accessing food. We do this based on their individual circumstances and using our in-depth understanding of and links with local food providers and meal delivery schemes. This ensures people receive prompt support and provision of food.

Through working closely with Brighton and Hove City Council’s Community Hub we make sure people can receive emergency on-the-day food parcels when they most need it.

We understand the complex issues people we work with experience, along with the stress and negative impact on health and wellbeing lack of food can cause.  Taking an holistic approach, we refer people to a range of relevant services to provide both short and long-term solutions.

I was so worried about how I was going to get my shopping during lockdown as I relied on my local shop due to my mobility issues. I contacted the Food Access Service. I was given a few different options and also how I could apply for financial support. It really was a life saver.

Service User

I was relying heavily on food banks but when I became unwell I was unable to get there. Ciara arranged for a daily hot meal to be delivered to my doorstep which was a God send whilst I recovered.

Service User

My wife always took care of the shopping and when she passed away I felt helpless and silly at not knowing what to do. I had some lessons with Ciara over the phone and she walked me through ordering my weekly shop online. She explained all about setting up an account, how to navigate the different sections and she was so patient and so helpful and didn’t once make me feel silly! I would recommend getting in touch with the food access service to anyone who needs help.
