Home-Start Northampton

Bag yourself some bargains from Shop Zer0 and do your bit to prevent food waste at the same time! Win win.Friday June 7th. We rescued plenty of pastries this evening along with plenty of all sorts of bread. Please come and stock up for the weekend, ask your neighbours if they would like some and bring your bags to take what can be eaten.

We have also moved and expanded our Scoop and Save. This is where you can fill your own containers to stop us using all single use plastic. We have ground white pepper, korma curry powder, mixed chopped nuts, fragrant jasmine rice, wholemeal flour, amazing Panko breadcrumbs and batter mixture.

Lastly we have some great boxes this week because of a massive delivery of fruit and veg. Micro £3.50, Small £7, and Large £12. No need to pre-order we have all sizes made up and ready to go. Because the pics are from the top they all look pretty much the same but the boxes are shallow, deeper and deepest.....
