The Deeside Food Co-op launches on Thursday 1 August between 10am and 12 midday at the Community Café on the John Summers Community Campus in Queensferry. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The food co-op is a volunteer run weekly scheme offering customers an alternative way to purchase fresh fruit, salad and vegetables, with the produce coming from a local supplier. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It has been set up by the Communities First East Cluster and the Rural Regeneration Unit, who are working in partnership with Healthy Challenge Wales, Change for life and the Community Food Cooperative. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Councillor Aaron Shotton, Leader of the Council, said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Food co-ops are a great way to save you money on your food bills with small fruit, vegetable or salad bags costing only £2 and it’s only £6 for large fruit, vegetable or salad bags. Healthy Start vouchers are accepted as payment. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

All are welcome at the Deeside food co-op which will run every Thursday from 11.30am to 12.30pm.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

During the launch on 1 August, the first 20 customers who arrive will each receive a free goody bag and there will be a free competition to win £12 worth of fruit, vegetables and salad. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Community Café is on the John Summers Community Campus, Chester Road West, Queensferry, CH5 1SE (library entrance). ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
