We've very lucky in Telford to have a Community Grocery which we tend to visit once a week.

https://communitygrocery.org.uk/how-we-can-help/

They have stores dotted around the UK (although not everywhere)
£5 annual membership gives you '£5 shops' which basically give you the equivalent of around £40 quids worth of shopping.

We also have another 'outlet'

So do check em out. I think they are looking to open more stores. So if you need one in your area, see if any groups are interested.

    Are the wholesale items priced then? We have food banks, and food pantries in my area.
