Anson Community Grocer

What is a Community Grocer?

Community Grocers are a redistribution scheme for surplus food and household items that would otherwise go to waste. They look and feel like a traditional shop with members paying £2.50 for around £12 worth of goods including fresh produce. But they are more than just a shop, they are a valued community hub.

Each Community Grocer is locally managed and controlled, meeting local need and a place where people want to go. Along with tackling the food poverty they are a starting point for transforming lives by offering activities, training, volunteer opportunities and access to partner services.

Becoming a Member

  • Membership is available to people living within 15-minutes walking distance of the project.
  • Simply join for free at the project and if we have free places you can start shopping straight away.
  • If the project is full you will be placed on a waiting list.
  • Then you pay £2.50 and chose your items with our colour-coded guide.
