The Refill Shop

We believe that great food shouldn’t cost the earth, food waste is unacceptable, and that no child should go to bed hungry in our neighbourhood. To that end Roots Refills will look to radically change the way food is bought, eaten and shared in Kingsholm!

Our shop will be stocked with dry cupboard essentials, cleaning and hygiene products as well as a few surprises like make your own peanut butter, pick and mix and frozen takeaways! 

The ethos of the shop will be around inclusion, which means from day one we're going to price all our products as low as we can so everyone gets a chance to shop plastic free. 

but there's more...

Tackling food poverty

The heart of the space will be a beautiful and sustainable shop, but we will also be playing our part in reducing food waste and addressing local food poverty

We're planning to turn food destined for landfill into healthy frozen takeaways in biodegradable packaging. We will partner with local organisations and families to prepare these meals, teaching people to cook as we go

These meals will be available free of charge, for a small donation or customers can pay it forward if they are able
