The Brighton Community Food Hub helps locals combat rising living costs

by Brighton Council

Over the past three months, Brighton Com­munity Food Hub (BCFH) in collaboration with the Red Cross conducted three trial food hubs to support access to afford­able food.

Data collected over three trials shows a great need for this service and con­firmed that each food hub event supports approxi­mately 350 people strug­gling to meet day to day cost of living expenses.

BCFH is a community-run volunteer organisation, aiming to build the health and wellbeing of indi­viduals, families and the community.

“We thank the Red Cross for assisting us to estab­lish this vital community service and the various other organisations, in­dividuals and volunteers who have contributed,” says BCFH President Christine Gimblett. “We also thank the Brighton Council for their support, advice and assistance.”

BCFH are currently run­ning fundraising events to raise funds so they can continue to grow the service.

“We are hoping to ex­pand our service to assist more people and to also encourage and assist other community groups to establish community food hubs to support their local communities,” said Christine.
