ESK Pets Pantry has agreed to have a foodbank collection bins in the pet store at the superstore in Courtlands Road.

The food collected will help pet owners living in poverty. Thank you Jason and the team at ESK Pets Pantry Eastbourne

“At Eastbourne Foodbank, we know offering pet food is important.

A few weeks ago an elderly lady visited the foodbank and told us she was in financial crisis and had been feeding her pet dog before she fed herself. She said: “Things have been very tough recently, but my dog is the reason I get up every morning – he keeps me going.”

Our volunteers were able to provide the pensioner with three days’ worth of emergency food for both herself and her pet.”
