Tackling food waste with Community Food Hubs

West Sussex County Council is working in partnership with Biffa and UKHarvest, a Sussex-based food waste charity, to run monthly Community Food Hub events across the County to reduce food waste and provide affordable food using rescued produce.

The Hubs are open to everyone and set out to reduce food waste by providing accessible and affordable food using recued produce from supermarkets, for example. This food would have gone to waste but UK Harvest rescues the food and redistribute this. Volunteers will also be on hand to help you to make the most of your weekly shop by sharing recipes, healthy options, and tips to reduce the amount of edible food which ends up in the bin.

Community Food Hubs are open to all residents, you do not need a referral that some food banks require. Just bring along a shopping bag and fill it from a selection of mixed groceries for a suggested donation of £3.50.

Last year's pilot programme saw Community Food Hubs established in Bognor Regis, Crawley, and Southwick. Within six months, they prevented over seven tonnes of food going to waste and provided food to almost 3,000 people.

The programme has now been extended across the County and will be running once a month across the County including Storrington until April 2024.
