MiFoodbank and MiCommunity

Here to help the community in Margate

We have two MiCommunity shops in Margate, providing low-priced food and household goods for the local community.

They are open to everyone in the community of Thanet – you don’t have to be a member or be on benefits. We have changed from membership-based because it is not just families on benefits that need help – but the wider community.

The shops are subsidised by the community for the community, so all donations help keep the shop stocked. If you are interested in donating or becoming a volunteer with MiCommunity, please email us or pop along to one of our shops:

9 High Street, Margate, CT9 1DL (map)
Open Mon-Sat, 10:00-15:00

92-94 Ramsgate Road, Margate, CT9 5RY (map)
Open Mon-Sat, 10:30-15:30

Need help?

If you are living in Margate and struggling to provide food for yourself and your family then please come to one of our shops and ask for help there.

We are appealing for donations to enable us to continue with our vital work. Cash donations go a lot further as we can buy in bulk at vastly reduced prices from our suppliers such as FareShare and Bookers Cash & Carry.
