Community Pop-Up Shop
At BASIC we are always looking for ways to improve our community.
As many people know we started our Food Bank back in March 2013 and it has proved to be an essential resource for many local people.
Recently we have noticed that there is a great deal of food waste, not only in our town but nationally and globally.
Our idea is to provide good food, which might otherwise be wasted, at a really affordable price to those who might need it - but, for whatever reason, would not use our food bank.
In partnership with the church of St.John the Baptist with St.Edmund's BASIC are opening up St.Edmund's church, Langer Road, Felixstowe each Tuesday from 11am until 1pm as a Community Pop-Up Shop.
We will offer customers a carrier bag at £1 each (maximum of two per customer) and allow them to fill the bags with food which has been donated to us by local food retailers or food from our Food Bank which is close to expiry.
We will also offer a range of clothing items at greatly reduced prices.
In addition we hope to be able to offer hot drinks and cakes.
We hope that this resource shall not only provide those in need with essential food and other supplies but that it might also create a strong and supportive community within the area.
