Epsom Street Community Centre

Epsom St Community Food Market delivers during Covid 19 crisis.

 

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Nugent’s Caritas staff and volunteers have extended the weekly food market, located at Epsom Street Community Centre in Kirkdale, and added a weekly a food parcel delivery service to reach those self-isolating or shielding.

This immediate front-line response, targeting those most in hardship, has, since the middle of March, provided vital supplies to over 1700 people with delivery of 911 hampers across the Liverpool City region.

The food market has been running for over a year and supports people of all ages and backgrounds, including working families, young mothers and older people from sheltered accommodation and provides supermarket quality food at really reduced prices, with a shopping basket of food available for £5, compared to almost £30 at leading supermarkets.

The Epsom St Community Food Market is one of two, our Woodvale Market is supported by Tesco Dale St, Sainsbury Gt Homer St, Foodshare and Micah.

The Community food market is open every Tuesday from 11am, at Epsom Street Community Centre on Goodwood Street and provides food and other goods at really low prices, with limited items free.

Thanks to Colin, Marie and Emily and our amazing volunteers without whom this wouldn’t happen!
