Chomp’s Mission Statement:
Chomp is passionate about supporting families with children who find themselves in challenging circumstances. We provide integrative support that spans across immediate needs such as food poverty and holiday hunger to meaningful engagement across interdependent communities.
We journey with our families as support is further through partnered stakeholders, ranging from the local council, charities, clubs and the wider One Church community.
We’ve been very busy since the lockdown in March 2020. Check out our report, overviewing all we’ve been doing to support nearly 200 families in Brighton and Hove.
The restrictions in place resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic have meant that our normal CHOMP service, i.e. providing free lunches and activities during the school holidays to children entitled to free school meals and families on low incomes were paused.
In response to this situation, we delivered food boxes containing fruit, veg, groceries, and craft packs to families with children, particularly struggling to buy food at the moment who may be entitled to free school meals, or other benefits, or struggling to buy food because of issues around their or their children’s health or disability.
Here is a short video showing the Chomp delivery service in action:

We will let you know, on this website, when our normal CHOMP service will resume!
