From Saturday 13th October 2018 we will be launching an 10 week trial providing pre-packed boxes of groceries and supplies to the people of Sheffield.
There are 50 places on the trial and you can sign up for either the ‘Little Green Box’ or the ‘Big Green Box’ with 25 of each available. Each box comes with a reusable tote bag for you to take home your groceries in (thanks to BIDBI for the surplus bags!)
During the trial we’ll be offering people the chance to collect their boxes on a Saturday from 8am-3pm with pre-packed fruit, veg and other staple ingredients. You’ll then be able to choose from other items such as chilled and frozen foods, household goods and store cupboard ingredients.
To sign up for a box all you need to do is complete this form and set up a weekly direct debit covering the processing costs of your Green Box. The processing costs support us in delivering many of our social and environmental impacts and to continue with our presence in Burngreave.
Depending on the outcome of the trial, we hope to expand on and run this as a permanent part of TRJFP Sheffield’s offerings to all. Not only does it allow us to use more great ingredients saved from being wasted, it also helps us get the message about food waste out to more people! We know a lot of you are incredibly busy but would love to support the project. The Green Box Scheme is a great way of doing so and will cost you very little time indeed!
