We are converting Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, to open our food stores for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from the madness of Tesco & Asda (for many reasons)
We’ve crunched the 800+ rows of our stock control spreadsheet and gotten it down to 190 of the more popular items that we can sell.
This is the first draft. We reserve the right to withdraw anything that is listed wrong. We’ll try to update it in real; time to reflect current availability.
So please look at the stock list and order form (on Facebook) and let us know what you think. If there are problems accessing it on various devices, social medial platforms or operating systems, please contact us and we’ll do our best to sort it out.
You can place your orders by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, either simply typed or by downloading, filling in & attaching the form.
Goods can also be requested & collected from Sumac Centre between 11am & 3pm on Sundays and Wednesdays.
You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.
When collecting from Sumac you are encouraged to bring containers, jars & bottles. To keep listed prices down as there will be an add-on price, of 10p per compostable cellophane bag). Bottles & jars are essential for cleaning materials that are dispensed from bulk supplies. (Extra empty bottles are welcome for those without).
Through engagement with Local Mutual Aid Networks we will arrange local delivery. There will be a cut-off radius – anyone closer to Roots Natural Foods, The V Spott, The Natural Food Company or Dash Vegan will be encouraged to support them instead.
This week it is cash on collection. Soon we’ll work on payment by bank transfer, paypal or card. We’ll look at defered payment for those that have no income. We will invite optional donations to raise funds to cover this. When it’s all over we’ll run a gofundme for any shortfall or donate any surplus to the Refugee Forum or Punk for the Homeless (or similar).
So please look at the spreadsheet and let us know what you think.
The next stage of our covid-19 support is to open our food stores for those isolated at home or those that wish to…

Future editions will include #organic & #glutenfree tags. Price comparisons with recommended retail prices & tesco prices will follow. We aim to be cheaper, but we stock ethically sources, wholefood, fairtrade & organic products, which with the broken food system are unfortunately more expensiive .
