On 9 February, the doors of the Gorton Community Grocer, based at Gorton Community Centre, will be opened for members to join up to the scheme. Members will pay just £2.50 for around £12 worth of groceries including tins, chilled food, frozen food, fruit and vegetables.
The second new shop will then open in Fallowfield on 23 February at The Place at Platt Lane.
Membership is available to anybody living within a 15 minute walking distance of the projects, and if you want to join all you'll need to do is come down to the launch event of your nearest project between 9:30 - 12pm and sign up!
As well as food and toiletries, the grocers will provide cookery courses, training and volunteering opportunities, as well as being a great place to go and have a brew amongst some friendly faces.
