The bread and butter thing
4 December 2022 (by Gary Quinn (GQuinn))
We're teaming up with The Bread and Butter Thing to bring affordable food to our community. Do you have time to volunteer or will you benefit from using the service?
The Bread and Butter Thing offers weekly groceries at a fraction of high street prices. It opens at Lostock on Monday 12 December.
For £7.50 they offer roughly £35 worth of food each week including fresh fruit and veg, chilled food for the fridge and cupboard staples such as pasta and cereal. Supplies comes from the stuff that you hear about in the news going to waste: it comes from supermarkets, factories and farms.
The food changes daily meaning your bags will change from week to week. Most members say that they collect food from TBBT and then ‘top up’ from the supermarket once they have seen what's provided.
As the bags vary from day to day, some weeks the savings will be greater than others. However, you will always be paying much less than in the shops and have new foods to try.
Can you spare time to volunteer at this service? We need 3 hours of your time on a Monday from 12pm until 3 pm
as often as you can spare it.
Get in touch with Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
