A lot of work has been taking place to deal with how to support rising demand without meeting people face to face and without much food!

As far as possible we are switching over to distribution of supermarket vouchers by post in order to keep everyone safe. This is complicated as we've had to include a system for receipts to be returned to ensure that the money is spent wisely.

Occasionally food banks are being collected or delivered with distancing rules being complied with!

Keeping the Food Bank going is proving to be very much a community effort.
 We are grateful for the support of Electric Storm Youth (deliveries), our gallant bag packers working one at a time at the children's centre,
the Lions for funding vouchers & many others.

Please DO NOT turn up at The Children's Centre, Lancing Tab or Sompting Big Local without an appointment. There will be no one to help you.

You will get a call back within 48 hours.
If we can help you an appointment to safely give you food will be arranged.
We need to keep our visitors and our volunteers safe at this difficult time.


Many people are asking us how they can donate money. This is a great way to help us help others. It means we can get what we want when we want it and not tie up our very limited storage space.

The best way is to make a cash transfer by BACS

Account details are:

If it works better for you, a cheque or cash can be left at The Lions Shop, any Lancing or Sompting Church or at The Electric Storm shop.
