In collaboration with the UK's largest food charity, FareShare, Bodmin Way provides a community larder in the parish centre. This initiative fights food waste and provides affordable food.
Abbie and her volunteers
welcome you to our larder
The larder is an ally of Plastic Free Bodmin
There’s something for everyone and all are welcome.
The larder, in the Parish Centre, opposite St Petroc's Church, is open on Tuesdays 9am to 11am and Thursdays 5pm to 6.30pm.
(one visit per member per week). Please refer to Bodmin Way Community Larder Facebook page (facebook.com/BodminCL) for regular weekly updates.
Fruit, vegetables and store cupboard essentials are available and delivered twice weekly by FareShare.
Fresh vegetables are provided by the Gleaners network when available.
The Community Larder receives support from the Community Champion at Morrisons.
The food on offer will vary from week to week.
A one-off membership fee of £4 enables you to buy larder products on your first and subsequent visits.
Bring your own bags - a £1 donation for each bag of fruit and veg.
For a bag of 10 items of larder products (dried / packet / tinned) - a £3 donation helps us restock the larder.
Food safety, safeguarding and your privacy are essential aspects of our larder service.
Within Bodmin Way we recognise that there is a greater need to support people and provide food for their families. The FareShare charity, grant funding, volunteers and small fees enable Bodmin Way to offer this service to the community
The Community Larder first opened its doors on Friday 25th March and we currently have 380 members.
Bodmin Way Community Larder recognises its first anniversary with a report by Abbie.
