Getting your hands on tasty, locally-produced food can be tough when you’re surrounded by high streets strewn with supermarkets.
But now there is a way to get great quality, fairly priced food in your local area. It’s all delivered for free and you become part of a community too.
That’s the idea behind Real Economy – a project originally set up by the Bristol Pound but now ploughing it’s own furrow across the city. Let this intro video do the talking:
Steph, the coordinator of Real Economy, explains:
“Real Economy is an exciting way to buy food and drink, and a great way to spend Bristol Pounds. Our online platform lets you buy food directly from local producers, helping to support local farmers, and since our producers are paid in Bristol Pounds, your money continues to circulate in the local economy.”
“We have food clubs all across the city. You simply register with your local group, place your online order and we deliver to your local collection point. Our food clubs are also a great way to meet new people and build community around food.”
