Veggies / Sumac Community Food Hub

Drop-In Every Wednesday & Sunday 11am – 2pm . Collection or delivery every day by arrangement.
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 sales@veggies.org.uk, 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, weighed to order. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in reusable containers.

We are baking wholemeal, sour dough and gluten free bread, and have flour and yeast available for home baking.

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, fair-trade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can match supermarket prices and can defer 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.

As we are volunteers with limited capacity we are concentrating on Forest Fields (NG7-6) & New Basford (NG7-7).  Local Mutual Aid Networks may be able to help if you need delivery further afield.

Roots Natural Foods (Sherwood), The V Spot (Sherwood), The Natural Food Company (City Centre), Dash Vegan, the Health Food Store (Mapperley) and others may also offer a similar service.

Sumac Centre Anniversary

sumac/images/dovelogo.gifNottingham’s Rainbow Centre opened at 180 Mansfield Road on 9th September 1985, the co-operative having been established on 9th April 1984 by campaigners for peace, animal rights, human rights, civil liberties and the environment. /moving/oldrainb.jpg

 


Veggies Catering Campaign (established 18th October 1984) moved in from Earthwise (the FoE Shop next door) when it closed, later taking on the day-to-day running of the centre.

From the Rainbow Centre base plans were hatched for the purchase of a permanent campaign base, which was opened as the Sumac Centre, in Forest Fields/New Basford on June 22nd 2002.

Sumac / Veggies Food Hub

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 sales@veggies.org.uk, 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 .
