How to access surplus food

 We aim to reduce food waste by working as hub for organisations who distribute surplus food to those in need.

Many projects across Brighton & Hove use surplus food to provide food for the community. These projects include lunch clubs, soup kitchens, food banks, and community food growing projects. Organisations putting on fundraising events may also use surplus food donations.

If you or anyone you know is struggling to buy food, please visit our food poverty advice page.

There are a number of options for sourcing food for your charitable and community needs. If you need regular food donations, especially specific ingredients, please get in touch with FareShare Sussex. They can also advise you on the Fareshare Go project, which can offer more flexible donation arrangements directly from a retailer.

For one-off collection of surplus food or ingredients, or if you need further support to find the best solution for your project, please contact us on
