The Feeding Birkenhead organisation is also involved in Number Seven, a not for profit Citizens Supermarket, Cafe & Advice Hub. Its aim is to help low-income people whose circumstances may be pushing them towards food poverty. The citizens supermarket is stocked with surplus stock from bigger retailers. It aims to be at least a third cheaper and in most cases even more and is membership based only.
Membership of Number Seven gains you access to the supermarket and 50% off in the cafe before 11:30am every day. To gain membership, certain criterial needs to be met. Check out their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NumberSevenBirkenhead/
