The Leicester Community Shop was set up in 2016 as an Incorporated Community Benefit Society. In March 2017 the Leicester Community Shop opened with the support from the Plunkett Foundation. The aim of the shop is to provide people in Leicester with low-cost food and household essentials while reducing food waste in our community.
