Hi, we are a charity called The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT) and we are trying to help people and
families to get by. With support from the team at The Durham Federation, we are coming to your
area on Wednesday 10th March at 1pm.
We provide weekly groceries at a fraction of the high street prices through our membership scheme.
We will try and always give you some fruit and veg and something for your cupboards and fridge
and we are slowly building our supply.
We get supplies from the stuff that you hear about in the news going to waste, it comes from
supermarkets, factories and farms.
Like a veg box scheme, there’s very little choice in what you’ll get from
us but for different reasons. Our food is given to us because it’s not
quite right for the supermarkets. There’s lots of reasons for this,
sometimes there is just too much of something or things don’t go to plan,
like when it rains in the summer when we are all planning BBQs. The
supermarkets try and guess what customers want
(and they are generally really good at this) but
when their planning goes wrong, they have food
they cannot sell.
There are so many reasons why food doesn’t get to the supermarkets at
different times of the year. We take what is available and make up food bags
for our members. Like veg boxes, we will give you whatever is available at the time and that tends
to change daily. The food you get will change from week to week. Some weeks are fantastic and
some less so. However, you will always be saving money and getting new foods to try. Most
members tell us that they tend to collect food from TBBT and ‘top up’ from the supermarket once they
have seen what we provide.
Because we don’t let you choose what is in the parcel, we can afford to provide things really
cheaply, we believe cheaper than you will find anywhere else. AND, because it’s a bit of a new
thing, we let you sign up and try us out for free.
