Kathy Volunteers at the Langney Larder

A ‘community fridge’ in neighbouring Langney is helping to fight food poverty, and Kathy showed-up to lend a volunteering hand.

All thanks must go to DB Domestics for donating a fridge freezer to store the cold food alongside the fresh fruit & veg, tins and packaged food.

The Langney Larder is open to all Eastbourne residents who are struggling in these tough times to make ends meet, and is open between 10am and 12 on Tuesday & Wednesday at the Langney Community Centre, Etchingham Road.

Kathy said, “Even without the added pressures of Covid, food poverty and food waste are real issues.  It is all good food, in date and is the surplus from supermarkets and food businesses.  For £2 a visit you can leave with a large shopping basket of food!”.

To follow the project’s progress and watch out for opening times you can follow Langney Community Centre on Facebook, and if you would like to support this project or set up a fridge in your own church, community centre or another public venue, please email Councillor Helen Burton at [email protected]
