Ever since Stephens opened its doors in 1873, we have been giving away unsold food to those most in need. What started out as just a few rolls has grown into hundreds of products given to charities each week and over £100,000 donated to many worth causes over the years. Given this incredible history in helping our local community, the Stephens Foundation purpose is to bring together all of Stephens’ charitable giving.

We are really excited about the Stephens Foundation and what it could do for so many people. Launching with a bang, we have committed to giving away £1,000 a month for two years. In it’s first two years of existing, the Stephens Foundation will be giving over £24,000 back to our local community.
