Retailer on a Mission: Fighting Food Poverty in Penlan

With living costs on an upwards trajectory and food prices soaring, putting food on the table is a constant challenge for many. Local community retailer, Suki, who owns Sanghera Food & Wine in Penlan, Swansea, is doing his bit to combat this issue, by offering a 9-item bundle of cupboard fillers for only a penny this Wednesday, exclusively on the Snappy Shopper app.

With the combined cost of these products usually totalling over £12, this is giving new and existing customers the chance to save over a tenner, while stocking their cupboards at the same time. The bundle will contain:

Batchelors Super Noodles Chicken Flavour 90g
Pasta N Sauce
Marshalls Macaroni 250g or similar
Digestives Milk Chocolate 266g
Heinz Spaghetti Hoops
Jack’s Garden Peas
Crisps Variety Pack 6 x 25g or similar
Haribo Starmix 140g
Robinsons Orange No Added Sugar Squash 750ml

Suki, Sanghera Food & Wine: “Working with the local community day-in, day-out, you really notice the toll that the cost-of-living is taking on your customers. People just don’t have the disposable income they had before, despite working hard and making cuts where they can. I feel privileged to be able to give something back to my customers – hopefully, this helps with snacks for the kids, lunches or dinners as we approach month end and things are tight.”

By the end of 2023, food and non-alcoholic drink prices were at their highest since 1977 (House of Commons Library), with over half of those living in poverty in the UK living with at least one working adult (Big Issue), demonstrating the extent of the issue.

Mike Callachan, Snappy Shopper: “Across the UK, we’re seeing living costs accelerate at an alarming rate, with individuals having to choose between eating and heating. Working so closely with retailers throughout the country, this is an issue which is extremely close to our hearts – costs are rising for them too and so it’s especially humbling to see them do what they can to make things easier for their customers, out

of their own pockets. At Snappy, we’re all about supporting local retailers, to support their communities, so will continue to back these initiatives wherever possible.”

The 1p bundle will be available from Sanghera Food & Wine on Wednesday 21 February for one day only.

To claim, customers simply have to download the Snappy Shopper app, enter their postcode and select Sanghera Food & Wine from the stores listed. They’ll then be able to click straight onto a banner where they can add their bundle to basket for a penny!
