Community Food Hub
In response to the covid-19 crisis we converted the Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from supermarkets crowds or queues.
Goods can be ordered from the stock list and order form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, for collection from Sumac Centre or delivery to about one mile radius.
You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.
Many items come from bulk supplies, weighed to order. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in reusable containers.
We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fair-trade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can defer payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.
Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.
As we are volunteers with limited capacity we are concentrating on Forest Fields (NG7-6) & New Basford (NG7-7). Local Mutual Aid Networks may be able to help if you need delivery further afield.
