The local MP was given a tour of the store, and shown the expanding ranges of low fat, healthy and ‘free from’ food. The store also has a deli section and salad bar.
The Liberal Democrat MP also spoke to the manager and PR ambassador about their work with charities. Alongside their long-running work with national charity Active Kids, Sainsbury’s Muswell Hill are also working to support local charities. All food which has passed its shelf life (but not its sell by date) is passed to the Soup Kitchen in Muswell Hill.
The store raised a total of £22,000 for charity last year including around £10,000 for Comic Relief.
After the visit, Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“It was great to visit the local store and hear all about the great work they are doing in the community. It’s so important that stores contribute to their local area, and Sainsbury’s Muswell Hill is a shining example of how things should be done!
“I wish them the best of luck with their work this year, and look forward to working with them on some of their fundraising events.”
