Foodbank and Community farmTwo of our Community Action Sutton members, Sutton Community Farm and Sutton Foodbank have joined forces to help people in crisis with no financial safety net. Too often people go hungry in order to pay other bills - and, as a result, their health can suffer.

Why have a partnership between Sutton Community Farm and Sutton Foodbank? Well, food banks do incredible work but often struggle to source and supply fresh vegetables, usually offering tinned and dried goods only. They are aiming to plug that gap by making it possible for people to donate one of the farm's Medium VegBags to Sutton Food Bank at a reduced rate, ensuring that someone in crisis can benefit from a healthy, fresh, square meal.

For just £9.20 you can purchase and donate a bag of locally grown, seasonal vegetables and the Community Farm will deliver it to Sutton Foodbank at Christ Church with St Philip for a family or person in crisis to use. To donate a veg bag visit Sutton Community Farm’s website at www.suttoncommunityfarm.org.uk and click on ‘support us’.
