Veggies / Sumac Community Food Hub
Sunday 24th May @ 11:00 - 14:00
An event every week that begins at 11:00 on Sunday and Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
Every day (EXCEPT Mondays and Saturdays)
We have converted the Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from the madness of Tesco & Asda.
Goods can be ordered from the stock list and order form by email to email@example.com, for collection from Sumac Centre or delivery to about one mile radius. There is a drop-in facility between 11am & 3pm on Sundays and Wednesdays.
You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.
Many items come from bulk supplies. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in jars & bottles. Empty bottles are welcome to maintain our supply.
We have a system for the safe handling of cash, with a separate supply of clean coins for change. We’re working on payment by bank transfer, paypal or card too.
We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fairtrade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can match supermarket prices and will look at defered payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.
We also are redistributing donated foods and foods from businesses that have had to close. If you have surplus foods to share, please contact us.
Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.
