Redistributing Surplus Food Locally, Sustainably and Affordably
Reduce Food Waste
The UK throws away enough food to fill the Royal Albert Hall every single day, 60% of which is still fit for human consumption. This equates to 6 million tonnes of edible food per year.
Encourage Healthy Eating
Fruit and vegetables are often the most expensive food products, leaving those most in need with limited access and, in turn, relatively unbalanced diets.
Combat Food Poverty
A third of children in Nottingham live below the food poverty line. With increasing dependence on food banks, breakfast clubs and social eating hubs, this problem is clearly a growing one.
We are looking for volunteer
store managers / drivers..

We are looking to collect food..
Are you a supermarket, store, cafe etc that has surplus food with no where to take it? Why not donate this food to our social supermarket and help reduce food waste and food poverty throughout Nottingham.
We are in the process of setting up a small urban farm in Bulwell where we will grow a range of crops to meet the present needs of the city- fruits, vegetables and pulses.
We collect surplus food from supermarkets, community groups and businesses all across the city, connecting those with surplus to those in need.
We sell grown & surplus food out of Nottingham’s first social supermarket, as cheaply as is sustainably possible. Healthy food is particularly subsidised.
