St Helier Community Food Shop
The St Helier Community Food Shop aims to support individuals and families who live in St Helier, the Wrythe or Wandle Valley to access affordable food and targeted support.
The project is being run in partnership with Community Action Sutton (opens in new window) and is supported by food provided by The Felix Project (opens in new window) and regular donations from local branches of Morrisons and Asda.
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 to those most in need, the food shop aims to help local people save money on food shopping bills and reduce food waste.
Members of the food shop will receive 12–15 items of both fresh and non-perishable goods (worth approximately £15) for the cost of just £3 per week. As part of the membership offer, members also agree to receive advice and support on education, training, employment and health and wellbeing. Membership runs for six months and can be cancelled at any time.
Starting on 22 April 2021, the food shop will be open from 10am–12 noon every Thursday and Friday, at:
Carshalton, SM4 6BL
