St Helier Community Food Shop

photo of a residents at the St Helier Food Shop The St Helier Community Food Shop aims to support SHP residents to access affordable food and targeted support. 

The project is run in partnership with Community Action Sutton and is supported by food provided by The Felix Project and regular donations from local branches of Morrisons,  Asda, Tesco and Waitrose. 

The Felix Project is a London-based food redistribution charity that collects high-quality and nutritious surplus food from suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis. They then redistribute that food to charities and organisations set up to help people who are vulnerable. 

By redistributing surplus and donated food and household items to those most in need, the food shop aims to help local people save money on food shopping bills and reduce food waste.

Please note that some items in the food shop will have a short use-by or best-by date.

Trial food box

We are trialling a new extension of the food shop and plan to distribute preselected food boxes from Wallington and Sutton every week.

The food boxes are for members who would prefer to collect a preselected food box instead of choosing their own items in-person at Hill House. If you sign up you still pay £3 a week membership fee, however, you will not be able to choose your own items. If you prefer to choose your own items you can still visit the food shop in-person at Hill House every Thursday and Friday as normal. 

Our boxes may include fresh meat and poultry, fruit and vegetables, long life and tinned items. Toiletry items will also be included. Please be aware that some items in the food box will have a short use-by or best-by date.

To sign up please email communitydevelopment@suttonhousingpartnership.org.uk
