Ellesmere Port - The Bread and Butter Thing

The Bread and Butter Thing is a charity that provides affordable and good-quality food to people in local communities. Recently we have opened a third hub in west Cheshire where people can sign up to get a low-cost weekly shop including essentials like fresh fruit and veg, fridge favourites and cupboard staples.

The new hub at St Saviour Church, Tarporley Road, Ellesmere Port, CH66 3JY is open on Mondays between 2pm and 2.30pm.

To access the food on offer, you need to become a member, which is simple and easy to do. Send a text to 07860 063 304 with your full name, postcode, and the name of the hub you will be collecting from – for example, St Saviour Church. Then, you'll be part of the affordable food club to get a weekly bag of fresh produce.

The food bags cost between £5 for an individual bag and £17 for a family bag, and you can pay by cash or by card when you collect it. You might still need to top up from the shops as well, but the food bag will go a long way to helping you feed your family affordably.

The Bread and Butter Thing also accepts Healthy Start cards. If you don't want the food on any given week, you can reply to the delivery reminder text that is sent out the day before saying, ‘No’.

The weekly bags are made up of surplus food from supermarkets which would otherwise go to waste, often because the packaging is slightly damaged or just because they have too much of it. So, if you join the affordable food club, you will be helping to combat food waste as well as getting fresh and affordable food for your family.
