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.
If you can volunteer for cooking, delivering or admin please contact us on Facebook messenger – Please and Thank you!
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 during the new global pandemic of our times, Covid-19. We’ve been running 2 Emergency Food Hub Kitchens in East Brighton, presently we’re at Robert Lodge in Whitehawk and our first kitchen was the Bristol Estate Community Kitchen; both have been serving freshly cooked nutritious meals. Over 1000 plus meals a week and over 300 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. Since lock down began it’s been a pleasure and a privilege serving our community during such challenging times and we will continue to do so into the future.
