Haywards Heath Town Council have made £12.500 available to support the reopening of the foodbank but the support of the community is essential during this difficult time. The foodbank is still reliant on your generous donations of food.
Town Mayor, Alastair McPherson said, " It was shock when the Foodbank decided to close, and Haywards Heath Town Council has been delighted to assist the Foodbank Trustees to be up and running again by the 8th April 2020. A great deal of thought has gone into how to re-provide this critical service and to ensuring the safety of residents and the amazing volunteers who are going to be packing and delivering the food. The big challenge now will be sustaining the service, and to see how we can increase its deliveries if required. It is so important that as a Town Council we do everything we can to make sure we can get food to our more vulnerable and elderly residents during their crisis. We must not LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND. I applaud the Foodbank and it's volunteers for all that they are doing for our community in Haywards Heath and beyond.
Meanwhile, the Mayor encourages all residents to donate as much as they can afford at the food bank collection points.
