The Bread and Butter Thing
What is the Bread and Butter Thing?
We’ve partnered 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 receive 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
- Bethesda Church in Royton on Wednesdays
- Sholver and Moorside Community Hub on Thursdays
- ROC ‘n’ Rolls Community Cafe in Holts on Fridays
- NEON in Greenacres on Saturdays
We are expanding into other areas soon.

"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 👍”
