Worthing Starts Vegan Food Bank Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
As reported by the Worthing Herald, residents of Worthing have created a community-run vegan food bank to offer people additional support during the ongoing pandemic.
The service offers vegan food and hygiene products and is available for anyone who is in need, not just vegans.
Currently it relies on volunteers and donations, and they are working with local vegan business, Conscious Cow, to expand their services to include a vegan parcel-delivery service.

Helping The Community
Local resident Pia Offord founded the vegan food bank in collaboration with local vegan businesses Field Row and Cactus Kitchen Gals in an effort to help the Worthing community during the COVID-19 crisis.
“Seeing people struggle in supermarkets and reading many desperate stories on social media by fellow Worthing residents, I wanted to come up with a way to support our ever-growing vegan community,” Offord said.
