FareShare Sussex was established in 2002 by City Gate Community Projects. The team redistributes surplus food to organisations within the city of Brighton and Hove and the Worthing area, which feed vulnerable groups.

Though Brighton is situated in the south-east of England, the statistics for poverty, deprivation and homelessness outstrip the regional figures and a number of wards are in the most deprived 5% of the country. Brighton also suffers with extremely high levels of drug addiction, consistently recording the highest drug-related death rate in the country.

Many of the volunteers at FareShare Sussex are recruited from the projects FareShare delivers to. Volunteers are provided with accredited training, support and structure to help improve their employment chances.

Voices from FareShare Sussex…

FareShare Sussex, Guy volunteer

“It gives me a routine and time schedule to keep. I also meet and mix with other volunteers. There are training opportunities and I have learnt about healthier food. All this has helped build my confidence and self-esteem.” 
Guy, driver

FareShare Sussex, Lunch Positive

“(FareShare) helps us to provide tasty, filling and nutritious food to homeless and isolated people in Brighton. This gives them the energy to begin to change their lives.”
