COVID-19 Food Resources

Here we bring together some ways in which the Brighton and Hove communities are coming together to support food and provisions distribution. As well as ways you can help others in need. This isn’t an exhaustive list, it’s one we’ll keep updating and adding to as we hear of incentives.

If you know of food and resource support that should be included here please get in touch via email:

The Brighton and Hove Food Partnership has put together this resource of local food delivery services (not supermarkets). Keep up to date with what markets, wholesalers, farms and shops are offering fresh food delivery to your door. Including fruit and veg, meat and fish, eggs and baked goods.

Another great resource from Brighton and Hove Food Partnership if you have questions about how you will be able to access food while isolating. This page has all the information you need which is kept up to date as plans develop. Including information about free and low-cost food, if you are in need of help to access food, tips on preventing food waste and how you can help others

We have put together a list of venues that are offering deliveries or collection so you can still enjoy meals from your favourite Brighton venues. If you’re missing your birthday celebration meal because of self-isolating or shielding a quality takeaway is the next best thing. If you can’t be with a friend or loved one to celebrate a special occasion, buying them a ‘rain check’ gift voucher for where you will go, is a great way to support local business and a treat to look forward to!

The Real Junk Food Project Brighton has been recognised as a project taking part in emergency food distribution in the city. They are now providing a take-out meal service at certain locations around the city and continuing to take food collections from supermarkets. You can support The Real Junk Food Project by donating money, donating any food you will not be using or you can volunteer to do food collections or deliver to people’s homes by registering online. Any help is greatly appreciated.

During this difficult time, we are all looking out for each other and supporting the people who are most vulnerable. Visit this Brighton and Hove City Council page if you are wanting to volunteer and find out where volunteers are most needed. You can also donate any old and unused electronics such as games consoles and Kindles to help those who are self-isolating in emergency and temporary accommodation.
