Food Market

Food Market

Our Food Market is a social supermarket where we operate a membership scheme.   It is £2 for annual membership this allows you to shop in the Food Market and access food at low prices. We do not discriminate on your status. You can be employed or unemployed, on a low income, struggling to make ends meet. You don’t have to be on benefits. We are here to help everyone we can.

Our mission is to reduce food poverty, food waste and social isolation. Allowing community access to intercepted food, encouraging and educating people on food waste.

We collect food industry surplus which would otherwise go to waste and offer it to members at significantly reduced prices. Helping people access to affordable food and a safe place for people to come.

#FOOD TOO GOOD TO WASTE

We intercept a wide variety of perfectly edible food from bread and cakes to fresh fruit and vegetables. We never know what is coming in every day is different, but we usually have an assortment of fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products, meat, cereals, drinks and cakes. We offer the surplus we have left after we have turned what we can into meals in our Community Cafe.

We are here to help anyone who finds themselves in a crisis situation.

WE BELIEVE THAT NO GOOD FOOD SHOULD GO TO WASTE

We save tonnes of food from going to waste and use it to feed people

JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST FOOD WASTE

Part of the purpose of The Bridge is to demonstrate what a community can do if they pull together. To do that we need people and lots of time and energy. If you can help out by donating your time energy and skills to us please get in touch.
