The UK’s first full-scale social supermarket has opened this week in Vale Street, West Norwood. It will be selling low-cost, high-quality surplus food to hundreds of people receiving means-tested benefits, while helping them back into work.

Community Shop works on a membership basis. Up to 750 local members can shop for surplus food at 70 per cent cheaper than usual prices from leading supermarkets, other major retailers and top brands.
