Ottery St Mary’s Sainsbury’s supermarket has stepped up to the plate to support Ottery Larder with bags of help.
The Ottery Larder were delighted to receive a donation of worth £200 of groceries from the supermarket, which has been put to good use.
A spokesperson from the Larder said: “We shared the food with the Ottery Food Bank and have managed to share all of the donated food with the community of Ottery.
“After a week of trading the Ottery Larder has now had more than 50 customers. There is no qualification requirement and no paperwork to complete. We have collected food from supermarkets which is nearing its end date, has the wrong label or is no longer stocked and it is all available for anyone to come and collect from The Institute, Monday to Friday from 10am until 4pm.”
Ottery Larder will soon be getting regular deliveries from Sainsbury’s which is very welcomed, as the supermarket is just around the corner from them and the staff are said to be very keen to help support local food charities.

The spokesperson from the Larder added: “We will also be collecting food from McColls in Yonder Street and Waitrose and Tesco. Along with our core stock from Fareshare, this means we are able to offer a wide selection of goods. A lot of the food was destined for landfill, and we would prefer if someone ate it!
“We share our space at The Institute, a charity which supports young families. They have nappies, clothes, food and everything you need for your children. And like the Larder, they don’t want anything in return.”
