Larder East

How it > works

At Larder>East we believe there is always enough when we share and get creative.

Using the combined resources of the local community, we source the highest quality food from local growers, business’ and companies who share our concern for fair business practices, the planet and our fellow citizens.

We offer a high quality grocery shop to all residents of East Belfast who would prefer to construct bigger tables than build higher walls.

We believe no-one in East Belfast should find themselves without access to nutritious, quality food when we are surrounded by neighbours with the resources, imagination and drive to keep our Larder doors open.
