We also nurture the growth of new small community groups. We offer information, advice, fundraising, training, engagement work and project planning.
The Pankhurst and Craven Vale food bank has adapted to Covid-19 by offering support with shopping and delivery rather than collection to maintain social distancing. They average 100 deliveries to 200 people each week. They coordinate donations from the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership, FareShare, Morrisons, the Sussex Gleaning Network and crowdfunding with a team of 21 volunteers.
