Shop Zero – the latest adventure from Elsie’s Cafe

St James location for new Northampton zero waste shop

Elsie’s Cafe made its name by rescuing discarded supermarket food and turning it into tasty meals – and now the organisation behind it has launched a shop.

Named, appropriately enough, Shop Zero, the aim is to to find a new home for produce that would otherwise being going to landfill.

Typically it is food approaching or past its best before date that will not be used to stock supermarket shelves but it is still perfectly good to eat.

Other sources of supply do crop up such as the dozens of pheasants recovered at Christmas after a shoot on an estate. They were turned into a Binnertime feast.

Shoppers can use Shop Zero in return for a donation.

It is located in St James next to the library and opens between 11.30am and 1.30pm.
