What is Poole Waste Not Want Not?

We support low-income families by providing affordable food, budgeting skills, and social activities to help combat hunger and isolation. Our community shop is member based offering support to 424 households. We also have a coffee shop which is open to the public and actively promote professional development, volunteering opportunities and group activities that provide ways for people to socialise, gain new skills and most importantly feel that they are part of something.
