If you are on a low income or are struggling at the moment community supermarkets and pantries are a great way to make your weekly budget go that bit further. For a small weekly cost you will be able to buy fresh, dried and tinned foods to make healthy meals for you and your family far more cheaply than in a regular supermarket. All volunteers are friendly and helpful and many access the supermarkets themselves. You’ll receive a friendly welcome and will be able to select the foods you like. Simply fill in the relevant form and someone will contact you.
