Students help our Food Bank

SudentsWe are proud to announce that the Brighton Food Bank is now supported by Abacus House, a student housing complex based just off London Road.

Abacus House SignBased right in the heart of Brighton’s busy student scene, you’ll find Abacus House, a modern property offering a range of en suite bedrooms in shared flats of 3 to 5 bed apartments, and spacious studios that provide private living within a lively community. They can accommodate up to 351 students, and mainly serve students of Brighton and Sussex  universities respectively.

After meeting with Martin West, the residence manager of the Julian and Martincomplex, it became clear that they could support the Food Bank, by donating the students unwanted food at the end of the term. Our Food Bank drop bin is located in their common room, so that if they felt led, they could also support us throughout the year and not just at the end of terms.

We look forward to partnering with this great organisation and the students, who will help feed our vulnerable clients in crisis. Thank you for your support.

New Business Links

New Business LinksBarclays Bank in Henfield, is the latest business to be supporting our food bank, and over the Christmas period, have set up a donation point in their High Street store.

barclays henfieldHow a bank in Henfield came to support a charity in Brighton, is due to our wonderful long term supporter, Henfield Free Evangelical Church. The church was contacted by Barclays, who were looking for the best place to donate their Christmas food collection to and so having a food bin themselves, they readily suggested The Brighton Food Bank
We are very excited about Barclays Christmas collection, as Store Manager, James Halligan has described the kindness and generosity, of Henfield’s community and doubts the food bin we delivered will be big enough. “Residents who aren’t even Barclays customer’s, will pop by, just to drop of food donations”
If you work for an organisation that would benefit from a Brighton Food Bank bin, please email comms@bhcm.org.uk.
