An excellent new food shopping scheme will open up at the end of the month. The Bread and Butter Thing launches in Hattersley Hub at the end of September. It already runs successfully in other areas and has had great feedback from families. For £7 a week a family can receive 3 full shopping bags of fridge foods, cupboard foods and fruit and veg, sourced from stock over ordered or rejected by supermarkets. You can’t choose the contents but you can save a fortune, all while reducing food waste. It allows different foods to be cooked by families each week depending on the contents. Just register now and then opt in by text if you want it each week with no commitment. Individual orders are just £3.50 and extra large families can pay £14. Well done to the local activists and councillors who have brought this to our area - it will help support many local families.
Any questions please call in and speak to Mrs Burlinson.
