News & COVID 19

Our volunteer army have smashed out and delivered over 135,000+ free, freshly made nutritious meals Citywide across Brighton & Hove since the start of the first lockdown in March 2020. We are going from strength to strength with the help of the wonderful partnerships we have formed across all sectors of the city.

Free Cookery classes will soon be on the menu…watch this space, we have lots more exciting news on it’s way…

We are still cooking and delivering meals, working with our amazing team of volunteers and we’ve had tremendous help and support from other community organisations. We are all adapting to the new Covid-19 world we are living in and EBFC have big plans for the future.
