What is The Food Shop
The Food Shop is about food waste and draws surplus stock from a variety of organisations to reduce the amount of food waste that we generate as a population
The Food Shop has been created to feel like a farm shop. We want the shop to be of maximum use to its members so we are trying really hard to make it as easy as possible for them not to have to visit a more expensive supermarket, or to increase the number of trips to supermarkets that they need to make, to be able to obtain their everyday basics.
The Food Shop will run as a membership scheme, costing £5 per household for each 6 month period.
The Food Shop is a food waste project and is open to everyone in our local community.
Members will then be able to visit The Food Shop weekly to purchase a range of items which will then be priced at the till. It is expected that a basket of shopping will cost around £5 but be worth at least £40.
We anticipate stocking the following categories:
Store Cupboard Essentials
Herbs and Spices
Pasta and Noodles
Plant Based and Dairy
Sweets, Snacks and Chocolate
Veggie and Vegan Items
Household and Pet
Toiletries and Body Care
Baby and Infant
We anticipate opening to the public for the first time on Monday 10th October, but initially we may only have ambient items available until we are fully stocked. Any memberships taken out in October will be able to be used in October but will cover November to April (6 months) to allow us all to find out feet, understand our stock, and get settled.
Our opening hours are Thursday 10am to 7pm and Friday 10am to 3pm.
If you would like to become a member you can sign up by popping into The Food Shop at The Stable, 3-6 Wadham Street, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1JY. The entrance is via our main reception and the reception staff will be happy to greet you and show you the way.
The Food Shop has been developed by The Stable and Weston Town Council and is part of the Weston Food Club Network.
