Mansfield Community Foodshare Project
Based at Ladybrook Community Centre and run by Ladybrook Enterprises Ltd, Mansfield Community Foodshare project has been set up to make good use of unsold fresh, edible food and produce from local supermarkets, which would otherwise go to waste.
By working with Fareshare, we are able to offer surplus food items from out local Tesco community here at the centre to people who would like to utilise them. All food is still edible and is ideal for freezing.
Available for collection from the community centre during our drop in hours of 12pm – 3pm every weekday afternoon, all food is free to take with a maximum of 5 items per person available to ensure as many people as possible benefit
The aim of the project is to stop the food from being waster whilst offering an opportunity for the people of Mansfield and District to access free food if they need to or want to help to save the environment. We would love to hear from you if you want to get involved with the project as a volunteer or if you grow/have food that you would like to donate to the project. Schools, community groups and organisations are more than welcome to donate goods to be shared with the community. Contact us to get involved.

My name is Deanna (it’s not always been but, explanations later) and I’ve been volunteering at Mansfield CVS roughly six and a half years now. During that time I have worked with almost every creed and colour, the disabled; the gay and the transgendered; the last two of which count me among their company, told you I wasn’t always Deanna.
