Our Story

About Us

We are Foodprint, a multi award-winning social enterprise, that run a social supermarket and redistribution network in the heart of Sneinton, Nottingham. Our store, is run by our store manager Nadeem and volunteers. Foodprint was established in 2017 by the University of Nottingham and now is a subsidiary of Himmah Charity. Himmah has been at the heart of Nottingham City for the last 10 years, tackling inequalities in poverty, race and education. 

Poverty and food waste is an in justice, and we are proud to be addressing both head on. Therefore, with one hand we will prevent waste and with the other we will ensure everyone has access to fresh fruit and vegetables.  

Between then and now, we have seen great progression in our pursuit to reduce food waste from going to landfill, in addition to  providing affordable food to our community. We have significantly expanded our redistribution network, partnering with more school breakfast clubs, food banks and other local organisations than ever before.

Our latest project ‘Foodprint on Wheels’, aims to bring affordable, surplus food to the Nottingham community with our newly renovated van, thanks to the support of the National Lottery Community Fund, and funding from alumni and friends of the University of Nottingham via Cascade.
