The Bread and Butter Thing


What is the Bread and Butter Thing?

We’ve partnered up with ‘The Bread and Butter Thing’ (TBBT) to provide an affordable food offer for our customers in need.

For just £7.50 per week, you can buy three full bags of shopping worth an average of £35 – one of fridge goods, one of cupboard goods and one full of fruit and veg. Or you can double up and get six bags, worth approximately £70, for £15.

TBBT services for FCHO customers run from Wallshaw Street Community Centre on Mondays; NEON in Greenacres on Saturdays; Sholver and Moorside Community Hub on Thursdays; and ROC ‘n’ Rolls Community Cafe in Holts on Fridays. We are also expanding into other areas soon.

If you would benefit from our affordable food offer and would like to be considered for this scheme, please contact the Community Impact team using the details below.

Customer feedback

"I am really happy that you referred me to Bread and Butter as it's much more than I was expecting and for £7 it is well worth it so I would like to say a big thank you, it will help me and my family so much xx."

“I was really amazed with the service, it is well worth it!”

“Thanks for great food very well organised and thorough thank you all at TBBT.”

“Wow... Wasn’t expecting this much!”

“Hiyer... yes, it's a good thing... obviously, the foods are going to vary weekly, but from the 2 times I've had it, I'm well satisfied... also, with it varying, there are little treats that I wouldn't have bought at the stores, yoghurts.. cakes... Parma ham...it gives you a chance to try different foods...obviously, I don't like everything, but overall it's a good thing for lower income people to have 👍”
