About this organisation

The purpose of our organisation is to address food poverty in the City of Brighton & Hove, by growing and supplying fresh allotment produce to food banks and community centres. The food we grow is donated to the Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project and the Brighton & Hove City Mission food bank. We also collect unwanted produce from other growers at the Moulsecoomb Allotments. We have two community plots at the Moulsecommb Allotments and we run volunteering groups on Wed and Fri.
