Chomp provides integrative support that spans across immediate needs such as food poverty and holiday hunger through to meaningful engagement across interdependent communities. On top of school holiday clubs, we journey with our families as support is furthered through partnered stakeholders ranging from the local council, charities, clubs and the wider One Church community.
Chomp was set up by One Church Brighton in 2013, in response to the need for hot nutritious lunches for children entitled to free school meals, who may have otherwise gone without a hot daily meal during the school holidays.
The most visible part of our project is that we run lunch and activity sessions during school holidays in 8-10 venues all across Brighton & Hove. Some of these are run directly by the Chomp team, while others are hosted and run by Chomp Partners. Between us, we feed up to 400 children and parents/carers every week of every school holiday.
However, the work of Chomp outside of these specific events is varied and growing. We run cookery workshops and after-school clubs during term time; we organise educational and empowering family day trips during the holidays, and we throw a huge party at Christmas (as well as distributing Christmas food hampers and presents). During the COVID lockdown this spring we adjusted our project to deliver over 1200 food boxes to 200 families. Our work also includes providing other opportunities to our families such as high quality barista training, wellbeing days, women’s running courses, and kids and parents forums. The thread that ties these seemingly disparate initiatives together is our desire not just to feed, but rather to equip and to empower the families that we work with.
This new role feels so exciting because it will enable us to do just that. As well as joining in with our work of leading and organising and facilitating Chomp holiday provision this person will manage the information and communication systems that will help us to work better and smarter.
