Social Supermarket

Going forward, another key issue that Regenerus is looking to tackle is bringing a ‘social supermarket’ or ‘people’s store’ to Bootle.

In an area where one in three of our children live below the poverty line, and one in ten of all residents have had to access a foodbank in the last year, we want to work with the community to develop a way to put more money back in people’s pockets, while still allowing them to eat healthily and cheaply.

Currently in the early stages of planning, we’re partnering with South Sefton Foodbanks, Sefton Community Food and local businesses and council representatives.

We want to talk to those who grow, those who cook, those who feed the community – and those who can help us talk to the large food retailers about reducing their waste.
