Lache Larder - keeping people warm & fed

Live Laugh Lache By Live Laugh Lache

We are a resident-run social supermarket in Lache and we want to ensure that throughout the cost-of-living crisis we can continue to divert food from landfill and use it to feed bellies not bins!

Chester Delivery stage

pledged of £10,826

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

We are a resident-run social supermarket in Lache. We collect surplus food from local supermarkets and divert it to local residents. We have been running since 2019 and, with the current cost of living crisis, it is more important than ever that we continue to provide this service. This winter we would also like to be able to open our doors as a warm bank and provide a warm and welcoming space for Lache residents who are struggling to keep their homes warm. We are asking for financial donations to enable us to do this.

What we'll deliver:

  • We want to collect even more surplus food and divert it to more residents
  • We want a heat pump and wind turbine to become more eco-friendly and reduce our bills
  • We want to be able to offer a warm and welcoming space over the winter

Why it's a great idea:

This project speaks for itself - why throw good food away when it can be used to feed people? We provide healthy, affordable and accessible food in a warm and welcoming space to the residents of Lache.

Steps to get it done:

  • Sourcing wind turbine and heat pump
  • Installing wind turbine and heat pump
