Making food affordable
Our social supermarkets provide local people with affordable food and other household items while minimising food wastage.
We buy crates/pallets of food from bigger distribution charities and sell it on to local people for a reasonable price. People pay what they can afford although we suggest prices for most items. The food is donated by supermarkets and other companies. This helps prevent food being wasted.
A membership scheme operates but you don't have to pay to become a member nor do you have to be on benefits. It's a simple form asking for postcode and the number of people in the household so that we can gauge need and respond to it better.
It isn't just about cheap food, it's about building community too. That's why we have tried to integrate the opening hours with other activities such as Tea and Toast on Thursdays and craft for kids on Mondays. We also encourage other charities and organisations to partner with us such as Well on Wirral and The Hygiene Bank.
Please come and visit and become part of our community.
