Community Food Hubs

During the current Covid-19 crisis, we’ve teamed up with a number of local Councils to help customers get hold of essential food items, when they have no-one else to help.
Emergency Shopping Schemes are set up in the below listed Council areas, and enable customers to place a food order over the phone for delivery by the local council. 

How it works:

If you are making use of this service, payment will be taken over the phone directly by the store fulfilling your order. Please note, the Council officers will never ask for your payment details. 

Council Areas currently utilising this scheme:

Lichfield District Council

Stafford Borough Council

East Staffordshire Borough Council

Derby City Council

Blaby District Council  

Items can be ordered from the list below and full details on how to access the scheme in your local area is available on relevant Council websites.


If you are already a member of Central England Co-op and could collect an order from store, or send someone in your place, then you could alternatively make use of the Membership Call and Collect Service

Food Allergens

Please note that:  
● The call taker will ask you about any food allergies you may have at the point of taking your order
● Allergens information published on this website is consistent with manufacturer’s product labelling
● All food products supplied as part of this service are packaged with manufacturers labelling, which includes a full list of ingredients and allergens
