Peacehaven Community Super Market

Sussex Community Development Association (SCDA) is a registered charity that currently connects up to 230 local families each week with food and other essential items via its Seahaven Community Food Projects.  SCDA seeks to build stronger, healthier and more inclusive communities by reducing loneliness, improving health and wellbeing, and increasing economic stability. We work with people of all ages, in particular those on low incomes who need support with issues linked to poverty, food security, and social isolation.


There are two weekly Community Supermarkets to local residents; these are held in the Peacehaven Town Council building every Thursday 11:00-13:30 and at Denton Island Community Centre on Tuesdays, also 11:00-13:30.  Our Supermarkets also includes a pop-up café & warm-space where members are able to access healthy, homemade food prepared by our fantastic team of volunteers.  The food is made available to all our members at little or no cost on a pay-as-you-feel contribution basis.  Additionally, we organise wrap-around community signposting services and a welcoming space for members to socialise.  Members are also able to take home freshly prepared homemade packaged-meals.


The food services are volunteer-led.  We rely heavily on food donations from our local community and local businesses to help us maintain our projects.  We are particularly interested in donations of long life food items such as tinned meat and vegetables, rice, cereals and pasta.  These items can be donated at the Peacehaven Town Council Building or SCDA on Denton Island during regular office hours. Should you wish to learn more about our projects and are interested to know more about ways in which you can help, please do not hesitate or through our Facebook page
