The average household throws away £470 worth of food every year and at the same time four million people in the UK are living in food poverty. A staggering 61% of food waste in the UK is avoidable and could have been eaten had it been better managed.
We are tackling this locally with our Community Fridge and Food Surplus Table.
The Fridge is inside the Resource Centre (RC) where we offer free surplus fresh fruit and vegetables, bakery and dairy products. We sometimes have store cupboard foods too. It’s open the same days and times as the RC.
The Food Surplus Table is set up outside the RC every Saturday morning from 10 to 11am with the same sort of produce.
Do come and see what we have on offer and bring a bag so you can take some produce home with you.
If you want to donate any food you have grown or have in your cupboard that you won’t use just bring it to the RC when it’s open. We can’t accept homemade food I’m afraid.
Please use the form below if you’d like to volunteer to help us run the fridge and/or food table. Thank you!
