Community Shop profiled on Radio 4 Food Programme

On 14 December and in the run-up to the launch of the UK’s first full-scale social supermarket in South London, BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme aired a feature-length edition on Community Shop. It carried the following trailer:
 
“Feeding Britain - The story of one shop in South Yorkshire which is changing the way we think about food waste and food poverty. A year ago the Community Shop opened in Goldthorpe. It takes food which would otherwise have gone to landfill and sells it at a heavily discounted price.
 
“Now the model, powered by Company Shop, is expanding. This Monday, 15th December, a new community shop is opening in Lambeth, South London. The aim is for dozens of these stores to be across the country”.
