Do you know about the new discounted grocery service at The Work Shop in Moss Side which runs on Tuesdays, run by The Bread and Butter Thing.

The food comes from supermarkets, factories and farms who donate it to the project rather than wasting it or sending it to landfill. The food is then used to make up food bags for the members. 

Because you don’t get to choose what foods you get The Bread and Butter Thing can afford to provide things really cheaply. Because this is a new service, they are now letting you sign up and try it out for free. 

Follow these steps to join up:

  • Text 07860 063 256 with your full name, your postcode and the name of your hub (The Work Shop).
  • Select the size of order you want to receive. A typical family order would be £7.50, an individual would be £4. An extra large family would be £15.
  • You'll receive a text every Sunday to see if you want an order. All you have to do is reply “YES” to the text by 10am Monday and they'll deliver your order to The Work Shop on Tuesday for you to collect between 2pm-2.30pm.
  • Collect your goods from The Work Shop, 130 Alexandra Road, Moss Side, M16 7WD.

A typical order is three shopping bags, one of fridge goods, one of cupboard goods and one full of fruit and veg, this costs £7.50. The goods can change slightly depending on what is available on the day.

Drop them a line and try it out. There is no commitment, if you want an order just reply to the weekly text you receive on the day you get it.
