East Brighton Food Co-op was founded to bring healthy food and community cooking to Whitehawk, Bristol Estate and Manor Farm. We expected to have a bit longer to set up! But the events of March 2020 have meant we have sprung into action in support of our community.
The Crew Club and Causewayed Social Movement for Health helped us to get set up and since 23rd March we have been working hard, 7 days a week, to make sure that anyone in our area can get a hot meal if they need one.
We’ve been fully immersed in the set up and running of 2 emergency kitchens and food hubs in East Brighton, resulting in our kitchens and food hubs serving freshly cooked nutritious meals and delivering them everyday, 7 days a week.
Over 1000 plus meals, and 50 plus food parcels have been delivered by local volunteers to local residents who have found themselves in need due to self isolation or challenging circumstances. We have been safely sourcing, preparing and delivering fresh daily meals and food parcels to our community since lock down began and it’s been a pleasure and a privilege serving our community during such challenging times.

When this is all over we will be working and campaigning harder than ever to bring community food making, celebration and eating to our local area. We will work to put in place the infrastructure needed to make sure the people who live here can enjoy cooking and eating healthy food.
A donation of £500.00 was made to East Brighton Food Co-op and as a result we were able to buy food and safety equipment.
