Unpleasant and bizarre items have been found in bags provided by Burgess Hill Community Food Bank.

Within the bags they generously donate, employees have found a box of sage and onion stuffing with razor blades in it, a used butter container full of potato peelings, used tea bags and a coffee far filled with used cat litter.

Chris Aldridge, who works at Burgess Hill Community Food Bank, said: “It’s a seriously warped person that’s doing this, I don’t understand it.”

He said he was disgusted particularly at the cat litter which had been urinated on.

“Someone’s planing unpleasant and weird things in our boxes, they’re playing games with us.

“It’s happened now and once before, it’s all starting up again,” he added.

Burgess Hill Community Food Bank was set up in 2013 to help people in crisis, to provide them with food.

Bags of food, enough for three days for a family of four, are available from the distribution centre at The Spire Cafe, St John’s church, Burgess Hill.

Chris continued: “People really need our help, and when people do things like this it makes it difficult to help, it’s really sick.

“It’s absolutely unbelievable.

“I have no idea why people are doing it and to be honest I don’t understand,” Chris added.

To receive food, clients will need to obtain a voucher from one of our partner agencies.
