Team Foodshare & Social Supermarket

Fighting Food Poverty & Reducing Food Waste


Team Foodshare Rainworth, Blidworth and Surrounding areas was set up in 2017 by the Registered Charity the  Social Action Hub in response to the growing need to support local communities who are suffering from food poverty AND to tackle the ever growing food waste that is both frustrating and needless.

We set about combining these two issues to create a Foodshare & Community Fridge Scheme.

- Shops & local people donate items to our foodstore they no longer need or are able to stock on their shelves

- Anyone can collect! 

You might want to help us tackle the food waste by collecting perishable items from us, such as bread, fruit and vegetables, that are on or near their use by or best before date. Or you might find this weeks bills are making the budgeting tight and popping in and collecting for yourself or friends or family might just make yours, or someone else’s day 💕

Our emergency Food parcels are available every day.

The Youth Community fridge is open Tuesdays 4-7pm.

Our Social Supermarket is open:

Monday 10am-2pm

Wednesday 12pm-3pm & 4pm-7pm

Thursday 10am-2pm.
