The Sussex Sharing Club's purpose is to supply food to families who find themselves going through a difficult time.  We provide a 7 day supply of groceries for 3 meals a day per family.

In addition to our regular food supply, we provide school supplies for all grade levels.  We also purchase hot meal tickets for elementary age children and recess snacks are given out each month with their groceries.  Our goal is to see no child go to school hungry.

In addition to this, we run a second-hand store (the Sussex Sharing Shop) that is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC MONDAY TO FRIDAY, 10:00 AM TO 3:00 PM local time.

The money from our store pays our expenses and enables us to purchase any necessary food items needed monthly as well as start any new programs that would help our clients move ahead with their lives.
