Asterisk Asterisk

general store

The General Store is an independent food bank and zero-waste supermarket based in SPARK* fulfilling groceries and art supplies for the local community, subsidised through the Spark York C.I.C model.

We run two days a week: Thursday from 9:30am-11am and Saturday 8:30am-10:00am. We work closely with FareShare and Kaizen Arts CIC by focusing on the quality of food supplies that can support lower-income families and individuals across York who may be struggling with food insecurity.

We also have an ‘Art Bank’, where there are a range of art supplies that the community can benefit from, with our aim to eliminate creative poverty in our community.

So how does it work? Fill a bag for £1 and grab as much as you need! 

All takings get reinvested back into the General Store to improve its provision and outreach.
