What we do:

We were asked by a local supermarket to show them how we distribute our food each day and thought we would also share it on our blog! This is all distributed before 9am each morning by our hardworking team.

We collect from M&S Gainsborough, Greggs Gainsborough, Lidl Gainsborough, Aldi Gainsborough, Aldi Retford, and Asda Retford 7 days per week and Tesco Gainsborough 5 days per week.
