There are a few foodbanks based within the borough which can help support you if you are finding it difficult to buy food.
Ways to reduce your food costs
ShopWise store, Sheerwater
Based just off Blackmore Crescent in Sheerwater, ShopWise is a store stocked with food items which for various reasons - think wonky veg and imperfect packaging - didn’t make it onto the supermarket shelves and would otherwise be chucked away.
The shop is open to anyone who wants to help save the planet, cut food waste and pick up a basket of goods for a great price.
