At this time, Eggcup is focusing membership upon people who are finding it hard to get by because a lot of people are feeling really hard-pressed during the crisis.

If you’re not sure if it’s right for you, then you can find out more by completing our online form below. One of our lovely team will then call you to explain a bit more about how it works and go through our membership questions with you.

Eggcup is not a foodbank.  We charge a weekly membership subscription and it’s currently £4 per week.  We have some Covid-19 funding to help keep costs down.  When that runs out, the membership fee may go up a little.  Each week, members receive 2L fresh milk, half a dozen free range eggs and a loaf, as well as a fair share of the surplus products we have that week.  Typically members get a carrier bag of mixed fruit and vegetables, some store cupboard items like pasta sauce, biscuits,  and beans, and fresh items such as meat, sausages, cheese or ready meals.

You never know what you’re going to get so there’s a bit of Ready, Steady, Cook!  Most of the food is absolutely perfect and it’s terrible to think it was heading towards a waste pile.  Some items might be past the Best Before date but are still fine.  We won’t give you food past its Use By date.

An Eggcup membership is a great way to stretch limited finances so you’ve more money for other essentials in life.  At the same time you’re helping the planet by cutting down on food waste. And you might get to try new foods that you never knew you liked!

To find out more or to apply to become a member, please complete this form and one of our friendly team will give you a call.

We’re getting a lot of enquiries right now. We’re working hard and we will get back to everyone, but it may take us a bit longer than usual to call you. Thanks for your patience.
