Saved! is our food waste project in partnership with Morrisons in Loughton
which started in January 2016. During 2017 we were able to save nearly 900
grocery trays of food from landfill.
We collect surplus food, primarily fruit and vegetables and groceries, several
times a week. We make it available during Foodbank sessions, and then anyone
can come and help themselves during the week from St Mary’s (Mon-Fri 9.15am-
We love it when the food can go to those for whom it
really blesses, but the bottom line is we don’t want it to be wasted! We have a
constant flow of surplus food coming and the produce doesn’t last long, so do
help us by taking what you can use!
