Donations to the foodbank
We have a crate at the back of church where donations of food and toiletries for the Horsham Foodbank can be left. These will be collected on a regular basis and delivered to Horsham Matters ready for distribution. The food bank welcomes donations of all (in date) non-perishable food items and toiletries. Please check the Foodbank website
for their current urgent needs.
Horsham District Foodbank is based at Horsham Matters and part of the Trussell Trust Network which gives food and support to people in crisis. Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks is donated by the public – that’s why food donations are absolutely vital to enable Horsham Foodbank to give everyone referred to them a balanced and nutritious three-day supply of food. Our local foodbank has seen the impact of Covid -19 on people in the community. It’s very clear from the conversations they are having that many people are turning to the foodbank for the first time in their lives. People who through no fault of their own have been made redundant or furloughed. Self-employed and casual workers are particularly affected as many do not fall under the governments support scheme.
If you are able to pop a few extra items into your shopping and donate it to the collection basket that would be great.
