The Deeside Food Co-op is held every Wednesday, from 11.30am until 1pm, at the Connah’s Quay Citizens Advice Bureau in Cable Street.


Shoppers can pick up stew bags for only £1.50 and salad, fruit and veg bags in a variety of sizes, all from local producers.

Run by volunteers, the co-op could help households save up to £200 a year on their food bills and some families with children under four could qualify for a weekly healthy start voucher to put towards their shopping.

Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant said:

“This is a great scheme which could benefit hundreds of families in Deeside, but many people don’t know it exists and I would urge them to give it a try.

“As well as helping to cut the ever-increasing cost of your food shop, by using a food co-op you’ll also be supporting local businesses and suppliers, which is turn provides a good boost for the Flintshire economy.”
