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.
