The volunteers of the Food Bank are making an urgent appeal for donations in kind or in cash to allow them to continue with the vital work they do for residents of Portslade and West Hove, to meet with the increasing demand on the service they offer.
On Friday 17th April alone 17 new applicant made requests, as well as providing help for those already known to them and this is in spite of receiving less supplies each week from Fareshare, who act as distributing agent to the various Food Banks in our area.
They are the only Food Bank who also provide applicants a hot meal on each visit. We live in one of the less affluent areas of Brighton and Hove so they
do need your help
If anyone wishes to make a donation in kind or in cash to help support the work of the Foodbank, please contact either Ann Menhinick on 07789 765 933
Items of used but wearable clothing are also welcome.
The two photos below illustrate the goods they had left over from the previous week, before and after the arrival of the supplies from Fareshare on Friday 17th April, which have to be distributed to over 50 applicants each week
