To fight food waste and redistributed food, St Mary’s church in Ealing has set up South Ealing Community (SEC) Food cupboard.
The SEC Food Cupboard will offer good quality surplus food items to anyone who would like to come and collect them for their personal use.
Entrance through the North East Door of St. Mary’s Church. Door closest to Ranelagh Road from the path round the back of St Mary’s Church.
A group of local volunteers receive or collects surplus food from supermarkets and food manufacturers (usually via The Felix Project) and makes food available to anyone and everyone from the local area.
The SEC Food Cupboard is available to all for free. Their aim is purely to reduce waste and everyone can help with that.
The selection of food items each week will vary according to what is surplus food that day. Restrictions on the quantities of an item each person can take could be in place to ensure fair distribution.
Pop along one Monday and help reduce food waste and the associated carbon emissions, use the South Ealing Community Food Cupboard. For full details go to SEC Food Cupboard
More of these community food schemes are popping up around the UK. They are great social spaces that bring people together to connect and reduce food waste.
Hubbub has some further benefits on Community fridges and cupboards.
