Refreshingly Different Great Yarmouth

 Refreshingly Different  is non-profit organisation set up to stop food waste, to help those struggling financially to purchase top quality food at extremely low prices, to support rough sleepers with food and toiletries. The food arrives at our store in 3 ways donations from the general public and local businesses  Refreshingly Different purchase rejected food items from supermarkets that have been returned due to dented tins, wrongly labeled, items that are close to their best before date etc, and we buy direct from food manufacturers over runs,cancelled orders and returns. Most of these items were destined to end up in landfill costing the companies money to dispose of waste.
This allows us to be able to sell food in our shop at a fraction of its cost. Our shop is open 7 days a week 9am- 5pm but usually we are open earlier and close later this is due to other services being run in the building (StreetLife GY and Helping Hands).
All of  main projects is the Foodbank realignment service where we offer persons in receipt of a food parcel a chance to exchange unwanted items for more suitable goods.

90% of all food sold in the shop has been sourced from manufacturers supermarkets and the general public, and was destined to go to landfill

90% of all food sold in our shop has been sourced from manufacturers supermarkets and the general public, and was destined to go to landfill.
Annual value of this is estimated to be in excess of £23 BILLION
the average UK household wasted £470 worth of food, which went in the bin when it could have been eaten.

Refreshingly Different use this food to help those in financial crisis and those living on a low income. All profits that are made go to support our foodbank realignment services and we expect that in the future we will be able to open a new style foodbank service that will be open 7 days a week. This service will offer a wide range of food,
