Worthing Food Foundation
We are a non-referral food operation that supplies dry, tinned and fresh food, as well as other essentials to people in need. People can self-refer but other agencies such as the Council, the CAB, schools etc., can and do refer people to us. The only requirement to receive food is that you are hungry.
We believe that our approach removes a lot of the stigma that surrounds food bank use. It also maintains dignity and, in the long run, allows us to build relationships that can then be used to steer people towards other help that they may require. We have developed a pathway that, in partnership with other agencies, helps people break their reliance on food projects such as ours. We aim to create a (food) safe and secure space where people have the time to seek and implement changes
