The Bread and Butter Thing

8 November 2019

The Bread and Butter Thing is now at St John’s Centre every Monday afternoon, providing weekly groceries at a low price.

They get supplies from the stuff you hear about in the news going to waste – perfectly good food that just isn’t needed by supermarkets, factories or farms.

This means that you don’t get a choice about what you are given – but you do get three bags of shopping (one fresh fruit and veg, one fridge goods, one store-cupboard goods) for £7. You can also get a larger or smaller order to suit your household.

You don’t have to take food every week – and if you’re not sure if it’s for you, you can sign up and get your first order for free just to try it out.

All you have to do to get started is text them – for full instructions, click here.
