After a successful run up to Christmas Waitrose Rustington have allowed Cooper Adams to carry on collecting food & toiletry donations for Littlehampton & District Food bank.
The people going into Waitrose Rustington have been so generous contributing to the foodbank covering BN16 BN17 BN18 Thank you for your continued support.
Littlehampton & District Foodbank - Who provide provide emergency food for local people in need. They said "Every day, people in our area go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. People are referred to Littlehampton & District Foodbank by a variety of local organisations, including Children & Family Centres, schools, Housing Associations and the Citizens Advice Bureau. Littlehampton & District Foodbank is more than somewhere to get emergency food. It is a welcoming, friendly place where local people can share their stories and be helped to find ways out of their crisis, whatever that may be. If you need our help please get in touch"
Shaun Adams born in Rustington and an estate agent for over 25 years said "We became aware of the rising numbers of people needing support from foodbanks to simply get by. We were then made aware of the fantastic work the volunteers at the Littlehampton & District Foodbank do and we were very keen to offer our support."
To access the Foodbank you need a voucher from a referral agency. There are currently over 30 local referral agencies including Citizens Advice, the local Children & Family Centres, MIND, social services and Worthing Churches Homeless Projects. Difficulty getting to the foodbank? They can deliver.
