The General Store is an independent food bank and zero-waste supermarket based in SPARK* fulfilling groceries for the local community, subsidised through the Spark York C.I.C model.
We run The General Store every Wednesday and Saturday 9:00am - 10:30am. We work closely with FareShare 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.
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.
