St Helier Community Food Shop
The St Helier Community Food Shop aims to support SHP residents to access affordable food and targeted support.
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.
