Max & Anna talked to residents on the Peabody estate about the Community Shop over the weekend. A great resource for residents in Norwood!

The Community Shop is a form of social supermarket but goes considerably further than the European model. Community Shop has developed the idea so that personal development support is offered alongside high-quality low-cost food, and there are significant environmental benefits. The revenue from the food we sell enables that extra support to be delivered by our team.

The Lambeth store will be open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, for members only. It will sell a range of products from its suppliers, just as one would find in any other supermarket, except for alcohol and tobacco.
