Food waste shouldn’t coexist with people struggling to afford nutritious food. Our foodprint project tackles this imbalance directly, redirecting food that is perfectly fit for consumption but would otherwise go to waste.
We sell surplus food at greatly reduced prices through our low-cost social supermarkets in Sneinton and Radford. We intercept and redistribute surplus food that would otherwise end up in landfills and is no longer fit for sale by supermarkets.
Foodprint covers its costs while allowing families to buy food at heavily discounted rates and keep their dignity intact during one of the biggest cost of living crises our country has faced in a generation.
Foodprint is now running a service on wheels where we take food right to the heart of communities and park on streets in St Anns. This service means that those who don’t have easy access to transport are still able to do their weekly shop. We will be looking to expand ‘Foodprint on Wheels’ to other areas across the city.
