Today we visited Kerry, who is about to open Food for Thought, Wellingborough’s first zero waste emporium, at Nene Court retail village.
Food for Thought is where Hart Brewery used to be, it was due to open on Thursday, but it will be delayed for a few days because of the lock down.
When we turned up, Kerry was very busy preparing a floor to be painted, so we didn’t stay long. She did have time to show us how she was getting along and to tell us more about what was going to be on offer.
Kerry said: “You will be able to bring your own containers to refill them with gorgeous food, mainly non-perishables to begin with, the essentials and treats! We will also have cleaning and personal hygiene products, and everything without needless plastic packaging and nasty chemicals.”
Food for Thought aims to do more than just cut plastic pollution. They want to:
• celebrate local produce
• promote sustainable living
• develop community and a sense of belonging
Kerry also talked about why she’s opening Food for Thought:
“When I had my daughter I went from a really busy career in TV production to being a milk machine! An unfortunate bout of post natal depression meant that I became completely fixated on all the negative media around the state of the planet but a real positive that came from that time is that I decided to do something about it with Food for Thought.
“I’m passionate about people and that we can all make little changes to help ourselves and the planet but still enjoy the fabulous things in life! Food for Thought’s motto is #morejoylesswaste!”
