THE successful Riverstone community supermarket, where items do not cost more than $3 and you can also swap your unwanted items with theirs, is now looking for a new venue.
Affordable Supermarket founder Alicia Martin has been given notice to move from the busy Neighbourhood Centre at Park Street by December, this year.
She is also looking for a permanent location where she can teach young mums living skills including cooking, finance and family management.
Mrs Martin also wants more people to participate in its Wings 2 Carry U program where they can work for food.
"You pay what you can afford for food and then come and work to cover the remaining cost of the food," she said.
"In return you will be provided each week with fresh food and vegetables and meat and pantry items for your family."
She said a family of four would pay about $60 (their average food budget) to get $160 of food in exchange for eight hours work a week.
Mrs Martin and her husband, Neil should know, as they had been struggling to pay a mortgage and put fresh food on the table for their two boys for some time before they approached retailers to donate fresh food and vegetables to her group.
She had more than 50 doors slammed in her face before two Blacktown retailers offered their support by donating food and toiletry items.
