INITIATIVES IN THE STUDY >> Neo Community Social Supermarket

…it’s about building a community. So, the emphasis is on food and making sure no one is hungry in the community, but also about knowing each other… We are not there to solve crisis like a food bank would…  It’s to stop people getting to that crisis point… The people tell us what they want and we make it happen. And they make it happen with us, so it’s not that we go okay, and we’ll go and do it all.
