About Eastbourne Foodbank

The services we offer are 'More than Food'

As a charity based on Christian values we seek to make a difference by giving hope, love and practical assistance to clients in need.

The services we offer are far more than food although this is an essential part of what we do.


We offer clients who have a red voucher :

  • A warm friendly non judgmental welcome
  • A cup of tea / coffee (where facilities allow)
  • Time to listen face to face
  • 3 days nutritional food appropriate to the size of the family

We can assist clients who do not have a red voucher but this may result in clients having to wait to be assessed.

More – than – Food
