Support HISBE, win free food and share it with others.

From now until 16th January, we’re running a prize draw, where you make donations to HISBE to enter. Every £10 donated is a chance to win - and if you donate £30 or more, we have some lovely rewards in store for you.

We need to raise £20,000, so if the prize pot reaches £20,000, the lucky winner gets a gift card worth £5,000 to spend at HISBE in 2021 and gets to give away another £5,000 in gift cards to local charities and causes. 

Should we fall short of our £20,000 target, your entry money will be returned to you. If you don't live close enough to our store to shop with us, you can always give the gift card away to someone who does.



HISBE is a rebel supermarket in Brighton - and soon to be in Worthing.

You can get all the food and groceries you need in our store, but we do things very differently to your average Tesco’s! 

HISBE is a ‘social enterprise’, so we don’t just pocket the money we make. When you spend £1 with us, we spend most of it in Sussex. We give 68p to our suppliers and the rest pays our staff the Real Living Wage, covers our bills and gets rolled into prices, not profits. 

Our shop is full of good stuff that you can’t get at the big supermarkets, from local and seasonal fruit and veg, and Sussex meat and dairy, to packaging-free food and cleaning liquids on tap.


Pay It Forward with Food.

Like so many small businesses, HISBE has had a bumpy 2020. We’re grateful and proud that we have managed to stay open throughout the pandemic, serve our community, keep our staff in their jobs and protect our suppliers’ livelihoods. 

However, Covid scuppered our plans to launch our new store in Worthing in May. It's eaten into the money we put by and now we find ourselves opening a shop in the middle of a pandemic... (gulp). 

We need a cash boost, to ensure we open in early January, hit the ground running and deliver the impact for people in Worthing that we have in Brighton. Our community could use a boost too, with so many vulnerable people out here in need of good food, now more than ever. 

So, we’re doing this prize draw to raise some money and give to people in need at the same time. 


Winning and Giving Gift Cards.

The winner will be selected at random on Monday 18th January 2021. If you win, we’ll ask you to nominate up to five Sussex charities/causes to receive HISBE gift cards. You can choose from our list here and you can nominate other local charities or causes that are close to your heart.

Chomp, in Brighton & Hove. A school holiday lunch club providing nutritious food and fun for families feeling the financial pressure during the school holidays. 

Turning Tides, in Worthing. A provider of homeless services for single people throughout West Sussex, on a mission to end local homelessness.

The Community Kitchen, in Brighton & Hove. A cookery school with a heart; where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food together.

The Food Pioneers, in Worthing. A social enterprise building community through shared food experiences, growing food and cooking together.

Rise, in Brighton & Hove. A Sussex charity with a vision of freedom from domestic abuse, that offers practical help, advice and refuge for those whose lives are at risk.

Safe in Sussex, Worthing. A provider of help and support for people affected by domestic abuse in West Sussex and educating to prevent domestic abuse.
