What's on in Peterlee


A food surplus redistribution charity that helps businesses reduce their environmental impact while providing affordable groceries for people on low incomes, is expanding into County Durham.  The Bread & Butter Thing (TBBT) is supported by funding from the council and the first hub opened at the Eden Hill People Centre at Horden and Peterlee Rugby Club on 17 November.


TBBT works with food businesses to redistribute their surpluses, helping reduce wastage and increasing their positive impact in communities by providing a source of affordable food.

The County Durham scheme will grow to take place every week in locations of greatest need.


For just £7.50, TBBT members’ shopping bags are filled with a minimum of £35 worth of items made up of quality fresh food and store cupboard staples from supermarkets.


To find out more about the charity and its work visit the The Bread and Butter Thing website.

People interested in using TBBT service need to register as members and should contact TBBT at
