Affordable Foods Stoke was born on the 25th November 2017 with the aims of feeding families for less and reducing food waste.
Did you know that roughly one third (1/3) of the food produced globally for human consumption gets lost or wasted every year? This equals approximately 1.3 billion tons, with around 795 million people across the globe suffering from chronic undernourishment!
In the UK alone, it is estimated that 8.4 million people struggle to afford a meal, despite the UK wasting billions through food waste annually.
Although we are a small player globally, locally here in Stoke-on-Trent we have the opportunity to help. We live in an amazing City with amazing people, but sadly more and more people are reliant on benefits and handouts and live a hand to mouth existence with low self-esteem and low incomes. Our aim is to not only reduce our City’s waste footprint but to provide those less well off with the means to support themselves and their families!
To do this we specialise in selling food that is: Short dated, damaged or past their ‘best before’ date.
None of our food is ‘out of date’, and there is a big difference between ‘best before’ and ‘use by’.
Since we opened we have been fortunate to meet some incredible people and work with some incredible organisations offering much needed help and support to individuals and families across our City. We are also able to offer free food and free sanitary protection to our customers.
We are open to everyone and anyone and you can just call in whenever you can (as long as we are open!)
We hope to benefit the community and love to meet new people so please call in and have a look at the amazing offers we have!
We look forward to seeing you!#feedbelliesnotbins
