Chichester District Foodbanks mission is bringing communities together to end hunger and poverty in Chichester District by providing compassionate, practical help with dignity, whilst challenging injustice. As a charitable franchise of the Trussell Trust we provide 3 day emergency food parcels and support, through signposting, to individuals and families facing food poverty. We work with local agencies, that come into contact with people in crisis, who provide them with a voucher, which they swap at one of the foodbank centres for a food parcel.
We also run a “Kids Holiday Lunch Pack Scheme” to feed children on free school meals due to low income during the summer, Christmas and Easter holidays. To target the right children we work with 50 local schools who distribute vouchers for the families to exchange for a fortnightly pack containing 10 lunches.
Chichester District Foodbank is a place for people who are self-motivated,enjoy problem solving have a passion for social transformation and want to make a difference. In return, you can expect the chance to grow and the space to be yourself at your best. You will be inspired from the change you make happen and the sense of belonging that comes from being part of our team.
