What to expect?

A typical order is three shopping bags, one of fridge goods, one of cupboard goods and one full of fruit and veg, this costs £7. The goods can change slightly depending on what is available on the day.


Most members tell us that they tend to collect food from TBBT and ‘top up’ from the supermarket once they have seen what we provide.

Your first order will be free of charge, so try us out at no cost to you.
