We have several volunteers who collect from donation boxes from a number of local supermarkets – Coop, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose. We also receive donations from The Artisan Bakery, Bookers and the local community.
There are two main teams – Lisa’s team coordinates the food parcels for Worthing and Amanda covers the East Preston to Littlehampton areas. Food is regularly collected, organised, boxed/bagged up and then delivered, usually on a Thursday or Friday.
On Saturday afternoons from 1-4pm, we host a pop up food bank at the Lovett hub Maybridge Square where food parcels can be requested in advance and collected. Other items such as clothing, toys and freshly baked goods are also available.
We also get a number of requests from clients who have been housed or are in temporary accommodation for non-food items including kitchen essentials to white goods. The Facebook page is fundamental in communicating requests to the local community as well as a mechanism for members of the community to offer items they have which can be donated.
If you need a food parcel, whether it’s a one off or something more regular, please leave a message on our Worthing Soup Kitchen Food Parcels Facebook page or Contact Us. You can also donate items on our Amazon wish list.
