Big Local outcome: ‘Communities will be able to identify local needs and take action in response to them’

Free Friday Takeaways

Our Neighbourhood CIC, have been running in invaluable project for residents suffering with the cost-of-living crisis since August 2021. Each week a group of volunteers meet at Leaf Hall Community Kitchen to cook  together 150 dinners for people needing help with food. Each person on the weekly list gets a hearty portion of homemade soup, and two delicious dinners as food for the weekend. 

Residents are referred by Social Services, Children’s Services, & Eastbourne Foodbank. Residents in need of help can also self -refer. 

 Having been funded by other funders up to this point, in August ‘23 Devonshire West Big Local awarded Our Neighbourhood £5306 to continue running the service for residents.
