Peacehaven Community Supermarket has launched a second location at the Denton Island Community Centre in Newhaven on Mondays from 11am to 3pm.
Peacehaven Community Supermarket is based at Kempton House in Peacehaven and is open on Thursdays, from 11am to 3pm.
Community Supermarkets are designed to reduce the need for foodbank use with members able to choose from a range of food and other items, so that they get the food their family enjoy most.
Food is sourced from FareShare who are building connections with local food businesses. Local residents are encouraged to share their own surplus food, so that nothing goes to waste.
Members are asked to contribute on a pay as you feel basis—this means that they can decide what to pay, based on what they feel able to contribute—and it is understood that sometimes that might be nothing at all.
The main focus is on providing healthy & delicious food, but members also have access to toiletries, sanitary products, as well as some cleaning, washing products and toilet roll.
Kempton House Day Centre are looking forward to offering tea and coffee alongside the community supermarket, so as things start to open up, people can stay for a cuppa and a chat as well. Social interactions are a key part – it is important everyone feels welcome and supported. It’s about getting food onto people’s tables, but it’s so much more than that as well.
