St Helier Community Food Shop

The St Helier Community Food Shop aims to support both individuals and families who live in St Helier, the Wrythe or Wandle Valley with affordable food on a weekly basis. 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)

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 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.

Starting on 22 April 2021, the food shop will be open from 10am–12 noon every Thursday and Friday, at:

Hill House
Bishopsford Road
Carshalton, SM4 6BL

Membership runs for six months and can be cancelled at any time. As part of the membership offer, members can also receive advice and support on education, training, employment and health and wellbeing.
