The Community Food Shed is behind 31 Fore Street - look out for the signs!
It’s free to take food from the Shed. Please do!! It is there to reduce food waste by distributing it to the community from supermarkets, producers and growers who would throw it away otherwise. It is also open for donations . Click here to find out more.
It’s also open for donations - there’s a fridge for perishables and shelves for dried goods. Only food in it’s original packaging, not home cooked or homemade please, as we need to be clear about use by and best before dates, as well as labelling for allergens.
