The Food Market Stall provides food for anyone on a PAYF or Pay As You Feel basis, and runs every Friday at pick up time.
PAYF or Pay As You Feel means that we ask you to consider what you think is a fair price for the food you are buying, and leave us that amount. But we equally value you offering your time, skills and energy to support the project.
From September 2019 the food is provided by FareShare.
Fareshare are the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste.
Fareshare believe that no good food should go to waste and redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals.
The food is all in date but surplus to requirements by the supermarkets. We ask that people think about what is on offer and what it would cost in the supermarket, but then donate as much as they can afford.
Pre September 2019, food was provided by The Real Junk Food Project – the food was “Junk” food in the sense that it was food that was destined to be thrown away even though it was perfectly good food.
