How We Can Help

We’re here to help the people and families across the UK stay fed.

To sign up to be a member at one of our Community Groceries, all you need to do is visit your nearest store (see our ‘Locations’ page to find yours) and let one of our team know it’s your first time. We will then get you a form to fill in and explain all about how the groceries work.

All you need to do bring £5 for your annual membership fee*, and a couple of shopping bags – then start shopping. It’s as simple as that!

Once you’re a member you can come along to the Community Grocery up to twice a week and fill up your basket for just £3 per visit.

A typical £3 shop can include:

1 sliced loaf of bread

5 items of fresh fruit or veg

5 boxed or canned items

2 chilled item

1 non-food item

2 different mix and match items

2 items from the fridge or freezer

Delivery of food can be arranged for anyone who is shielding.

As well as being able to shop for less, members also get access to a range of courses and one-to-one support sessions free of charge. The courses running at the moment include:

  • What’s cooking? – Come and learn how to feed your family with delicious food on a budget.
