A key part of Feeding Britain’s strategy for addressing the social and economic consequences of COVID-19 is the development of affordable food provision at the heart of each community.
Feeding Glasgow, in collaboration with SWAMP and G53 Together, is developing a new Citizens’ Supermarket in the South West of the city, aiming to reduce the financial pressure on households who are struggling to pay the bills and put food on the table.
Our Glasgow Citizens’ Supermarket will include a shopping area, a community café and an advice hub. It will provide immediate financial relief for households on low incomes, by improving their access to affordable, nutritious food, while addressing some of the underlying issues which may have left them vulnerable to hunger. Named ‘Threehills’, the facility will serve the people of Priesthill, Nitshill and Rosehill as well as the greater Pollok area.
We aim to provide choice in shopping for food by supplying subsidised food in a normal supermarket environment, re-purpose high quality supplies which would have otherwise been sent to landfill and ease people out of poverty with dignity and respect, preventing the need to access the services of a food bank.
