Foodbank services in Henfield

Part of the Horsham District Foodbank, we have been successfully collaborating with Horsham Matters to provide essential food parcel deliveries for those in Henfield who need emergency food help.

How do I know if I’m eligible? 

By calling 0300 124 0204. An adviser will be able to get you help and support. 

What will Horsham Matters ask me? 

The trained Foodbank adviser will ask you a few questions to assess your situation. 

Do I need to be on benefits or claiming Pension Credits to access support?

No, there is no set criteria, other than being unable to afford to buy basic food. 

Will I have to obtain a referral voucher? 

The Foodbank adviser will assess your situation and either give you a voucher code to be redeemed in the Horsham Matters Hub van which visits the Henfield Library Car Park every Friday morning between 11.45am-12.45pm, or refer you for a delivery of an Emergency Food Parcel. 

Do I need to travel to access my food parcel? 

If your need is not urgent and you’re able to visit the Horsham Matters Hub van you can come and select your own food parcel. However, if your need is urgent or you cannot travel then local volunteers will arrange for it to be delivered discreetly to your home. 

Do you need donations of food? 

Horsham Matters welcome the donation of non-perishable food items in the collection baskets placed in the Henfield Hall (temporary location) and in the porch of St Peter’s Church. 

For up to date lists of what they need please see 

Food poverty and insecurity is an increasing problem for both individuals and families through no fault of their own. If you are affected, please don’t suffer in silence, but get in touch with Horsham Matters by phone or via the website.
