Foodprint is Nottingham’s first social supermarket and a surplus food redistribution network.
They take food that supermarkets would otherwise throw away, but which is still good to eat, and sell it at low prices in their volunteer-run Sneinton store. This saves food from landfill while ensuring everyone can afford nutritious food. Revenue from the shop subsidises their redistribution operation, delivering food to a number of partner homeless shelters, food banks and social eating projects.
Since opening in December 2017 they have diverted over 19 tonnes of food from landfill, preventing the release of almost 80 tonnes of CO2, and they impact hundreds of people every week through their shop and redistribution network.
