Worthing Foodbank collection success

As Worthing Foodbank manager, I wish to send a huge thank you to Asda for allowing us to collect food outside their store on Saturday, June 4, and to all the customers who gave so generously, you gave 809.35 kgs of food.

A big thanks also to all my wonderful volunteers who continue to support Foodbank faithfully.

In 2015, Worthing Foodbank managed to feed 1,851 people a three-day food supply. That is 16,659 meals. So far, to the end of May this year, we have fed 685 people.
