The Bread and Butter Thing
October 9, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Monday, repeating until March 4, 2024
The Bread and Butter Thing offers weekly groceries at a fraction of high street prices at our The Old
School hub at The Old School on Mondays at 1:30pm.
For £7.50 we offer roughly £35 worth of food each week including fresh fruit and veg, chilled food for the
fridge and cupboard staples such as pasta and cereal. We get our supplies from the stuff that you hear
about in the news going to waste: it comes from supermarkets, factories and farms.
The food changes daily meaning your bags will change from week to week. Most members tell us that
they collect food from TBBT and then ‘top up’ from the supermarket once they have seen what we
As the bags vary from day to day, some weeks the savings will be greater than others. However, you will
always be paying much less than in the shops and have new foods to try. Very occasionally, if food
supplies that day are low, we will not have enough for the 3 bags. In this case, we will lower the price. We
want you to feel we are making a difference to your weekly food bills.
Why not give us a try? There is no commitment and its free to join. If you want an order just reply to the
weekly text you receive on the day you get it. It’s really easy to sign-up to TBBT…
