Community Shop is our award-winning social enterprise, building stronger individuals and more confident communities.   

It uses surplus food to do much more than feed those on the cusp of food poverty. It builds confidence, gives people purpose and nurtures stronger communities. 

Providing its members with vital access to deeply discounted food, as well as life-changing learning and development programmes, Community Shop is a hand up, not a hand out. 


Community Store
Powered by surplus and donated food from our amazing partners, Community Store offers food and household products from well-known brands at deeply discounted prices.  For those on the cusp of food poverty, this vital access helpto feed families while making sure that perfectly good products don’t go to waste. 
Community Hub
Powered by the profits from Community Store, Community Hub provides life-changing training and personal development through the Success Plan, helping people to increase their confidence, build on strengths and overcome barriers in their lives.  Including anything from health and wellbeing to money matters and community leadership training – Community Hub inspires people to become the best version of themselves.   
Community Kitchen
Powered by Community Store and Community Hub, Community Kitchen is a welcoming space where people can enjoy good quality meals at low cost prices.  But they are much more than that.  Through a range of events and family activities, they get people out of the house, get strangers talking and bring communities together.  Their busy calendars include things like cook clubs, seasonal activities and family events – and kids can eat for free!
