Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


snvb Food

Established in January 2021, snvb Food is a community larder network that partner with local supermarkets, businesses and food surplus providers to reduce food waste and distribute affordable food throughout the community. We welcome EVERYONE, with our main ethos being to REDUCE FOOD WASTE.

Our Larders, located in Towcester and Roade, offer membership to EVERYONE. Full details can be found on our website. We also work closely with Brackley and Bugbrooke to ensure we cover all of South Northamptonshire.

Our sessions are:

  • ROADE: Mondays (1.30 – 2.15pm) at Roade Village Hall, Bailey Brooks Lane, Roade NN7 2LS
  • TOWCESTER: Thursdays (10 – 10.45am) at Towcester Town Football Supporters Club on Islington Road

In addition to our Larder sessions, we work with Grand Union Homes, West Northamptonshire Council and local schools to support with food supplies for individuals and families that may require a little extra food support.

How do we differ from the Community Fridge and the Foodbank?

Community Larders

A membership programme that provides access to surplus groceries (store cupboard items and fruit and vegetables) at heavily discounted rates. Subscription to SOFEA, an organisation that works closely with FareShare to distribute surplus food, ensures we have ample provisions for all members.

Membership (£10 per year) is open to EVERYONE. Fee per week is £5 (10 items) or £10 (22 items). All fruit, veg and bread are free to members. Visit our website to sign up or complete a form.

We deliver to people / families unable to attend for mobility reasons.

Towcester Community Fridge

FREE to everyone, with short-dated food surplus being rescued from local supermarkets and businesses and distributed during regular drop-in sessions. The amount and type of food varies from day to day with each session operating until all the perishable food is distributed.

Open Mondays, Wednesdays (10am) and Fridays (4pm)

Towcester Foodbank

Emergency food to people in crisis. Please call 07724 832043 for more information or see a member of the Community Fridge team to get a referral.
