The Horsham District Council Neighbourhood Wardens for Steyning, Bramber and Upper Beeding have helped distribute food parcels to local residents in need.

The council had received a call for help from Horsham Matters Food Bank, who needed people to deliver food parcels in Steyning. The Neighbourhood Wardens took up the challenge and delivered 33 parcels to residents.

This week the Food Bank has been delivering 206 food parcels across the district to families who are struggling financially to provide food during half term. These parcels provided meals for 836 people - which included 500 children. This follows food parcel deliveries at Christmas, again with the help of Horsham District Neighbourhood Wardens.

Cllr Tricia Youtan, Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Community Matters and Wellbeing, said

Horsham Matters Food Bank does a terrific job of helping local people and I am so pleased that our Neighbourhood Wardens have been able to help distribute food to those who need it in Steyning.
