Foodshare Scheme & Community Fridge
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 💕
We are open during the Term Term Wednesday and Thursday 12pm - 4pm. We are closed during the School Holidays.
Our service is not means tested, you do not have to be in receipt of benefits, we don’t need proof of income - We are open to all. - We do not deliver.
Our Donators are:
Milk and More (Local Milk Man Alan)
Our Partners are:
Cambridge Close OAP's Group
Rainworth Pétanque Club
Newark and Sherwood Homes
Sherwood Forest Food Bank
Hubbub's Play Sessions & Playscheme
