Newhaven Food Bank

Newhaven Food Bank is now based at Denton Island Community Centre, Denton Island, Newhaven.

LDC 21-4-16 (01)

How to use the Food Bank:

Please go to the reception desk at Denton Island Community Centre with a copy of a referral form issued to you by the agency referring you (for example, Job Centre Plus, Social Services, Homeworks and so on). A member of staff at reception will call the Food Bank and a volunteer will take you there and give you the food parcel. Your referral form entitles you to a maximum of six food parcels. If you need further assistance our Food Bank team can review this with the referring agency and continued support is possible once a new referral form is issued to you. The Food Bank is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday mornings from 9am to 12pm. It will also be open from 10am-12pm each Friday from the beginning of February 2017.

Donations of non-perishable food are very welcome and can be left at several collection points including Sainsbury’s Newhaven, Newhaven Town Council Offices, Denton Island Community Centre and the Sacred Heart Church.

Volunteers are welcome – please contact the Healthy Living team on 01273 516032.
