We are called 'Food for All' because we aim to provide Food for the mind by the sale of both Christian and general books, Food for the Developing World by the sale of Traidcraft goods, and Food for the body in our Drop in Centre.
We opened in June 1990, and are run entirely by volunteers from churches of different denominations in the area, with trustees and an interdenominational consultative and advisory committee. We aim to stock, or obtain quickly, Christian Books from any mainstream Christian tradition and a selection of general books to meet most needs. The first area of the shop that anyone sees on entry is the area where we are displaying a large stock of Christian books for adults, cards for all occasions and a small selection of gifts, CD's and cassettes.
We obtain most of our Christian books from Send-the-Light Wholesaler which enables us to run a speedy ordering service for books not on our shelves. The policy of the shop is to stock books from all mainstream Christian traditions provided that there is a market for them among our customers. A corner of this part of the shop is dedicated to the sale ofTraidcraft goods; mainly food and drink.
