Social supermarkets

Social supermarkets help to tackle food poverty and the lack of community connection (‘social deficit’) that many experience.  They are based in community areas and any embarrassment or stigma of accessing support is minimised through relationship building.  Part of the culture of the social supermarkets is also about opportunities for people to give back to the community, giving people a sense of purpose and value.
