Welcome to City Food Share CIC

Addressing Food Insecurity, Raising Awareness, Building Community.

About Us

Founded in 2019, City Food Share CIC is a community interest company committed to combating food insecurity and promoting sustainable living. Through partnerships with local organisations, we work to support vulnerable people and raise awareness about food-related challenges in our community of Sussex.

Our Mission

Our mission is to alleviate hunger, reduce food waste, and engage the community in meaningful ways to create a more food-secure and resilient society.

What We Do

Partnerships and Support: We collaborate with emergency food providers and community organisations to help provide essential items and resources to those in need.

Community Engagement: Our initiatives include awareness campaigns, community events, and fundraising initiatives aimed at raising awareness about food insecurity and promoting sustainable living practices.

Upcoming Project: Community Bites Magazine - Community Bites Magazine will be a bi-monthly publication distributed to up to 10 locations in Sussex. The magazine will highlight the incredible work of local food charities, provide practical tips for reducing food waste, and feature recipes and stories that encourage community engagement and support for local initiatives.

Collaborate with us: Are you part of a local food organisation or charity? We'd love to work with you! Together, we can amplify our impact and reach more people in our community.

Since 2019 we have supported emergency food providers predominantly in Brighton Sussex which have included Newhaven Foodbank, City Gate, Carpenters Arms, One Church Night Shelter, Hangleton and West Blatchington Foodbank, Whitehawk Food Bank, St Annes Day Centre, and All Saints Night Shelter. For London and the Rest of the UK we have also previously supported FareShare UK with Tap & Share units outside of Sussex, however now we are currently concentrating on the Community Bites magazine rather than our fundraising campaigns.
