The Open Hands Food Store offers the opportunity for those struggling financially to access an emergency supply of food. If you know an individual or family in need through a professional manner you can request a food store voucher on their behalf by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Store is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9.30am-12.30pm and is located on the Open Hands Compassion Unit site (23-25 Highfield Street, LE2 1AB). Please click here to download and/or print a map showing the location of the Compassion Unit. The Store is set up like a shop in which guests will hand in their completed and signed voucher and will then 'shop' around for what they need (all items will be free with the voucher). The items that will be available will be primarily non-perishable items (e.g. tea bags, UHT milk, sugar, cereal, pasta, rice, tinned fruit/vegetables, tinned soup/baked beans/fish/meat etc.) and each guest will be able to select a certain number of each item.
