Due to changes in the supply chain our popular ‘Waste Not Want Not’ scheme is changing.
We’re moving into the large hall upstairs and moving to 1-2pm on Fridays . We are also switching to a pick and mix style system where you choose your own produce. The price is staying the same though and 16 items will be £5.
We receive our food from FareShare Hull & Humber who receives tonnes of surplus food from the food industry every week . This food is of excellent quality and is surplus for a whole number of reasons ranging from incorrect bar coding to over-manufacture – not usually because it is out of date (although some items are close ).
We usually mange to re-home approximately 200kg quality food a week.
The food we receive ranges from fresh meat, fish, fruit and vegetables to tins packets and jars, as well as the occasional cleaning and toiletry product. Products are well known brands, dates are sometimes short i.e. use within a week on fresh products and a few months for ambient products.
The scheme is open to all.
