Bulk buying from Infinity Foods

Transition Town Hastings news

Transition Town Hastings has sent us some updates about what’s happening locally to develop sustainability and a sense of community in Hastings and St Leonards. Bulk buying, AGM and Green Drinks.

Bulk buying anyone?

Transition Town Hastings (TTH) has received an email from one of their members who is looking for people interested in a bulk buying scheme from Infinity Foods in Brighton.

The TTH member set up a similar scheme 10 years ago, which still runs today with volunteers. Infinity Wholefoods, based in Brighton, deliver to the Hastings & St Leonards area on Wednesdays with a minimum order of £250. Therefore, if 5 people ordered £50 of food it would cover the minimum order. This would only be for dried goods (no fruit and veg).

Benefits include; high quality (organic/fairtrade) foods at wholesale prices, fewer shopping trips, less packaging and is also community building.

If you’re interested in this scheme let TTH know at and we’ll point you in the right direction.

01c48b6e-abb3-4126-8f58-bbc2902d6e4cTTH AGM coming soon. All welcome!

Don’t forget the TTH AGM is taking place on 21 October from 10.00 – noon at the White Rock Hotel. They’ll be giving a summary of what they’ve been up to, sharing potential project plans, selecting new committee members and they’ll also have a couple of speakers including Don Wise from The Badgers Society and Gabriel Carlyle from Fossil Free Hastings. They welcome any interest from members wanting to take on roles on the committee or help with publicity and events. So if you fancy yourself as a blogger or event organiser, they’d love to hear from you. Email TTH at TTH hopes you can make it to the AGM and help them steer the future of this organisation.
