Who We Are

Food Float encourages the whole community to work for each other: local growers and producers; local customers; and keeping money in the local economy. We would like to make the most of Surrey’s rich resources without the need to travel further afield.

Our story so far
Food Float Community Interest Company is run by a small group of local residents. We began in 2009 with the idea of a new economic concept which points to future ways of supplying and buying food. Since then local produce has taken off “big time” and is a selling point for retailers and restaurants alike. The first stall was on 6th March 2010.

In 2014 Food Float joined a delegation to Parliament to promote Surrey’s produce, and Tim met the Prime Minister Rt Hon David Cameron MP.

Two part-time paid staff carry out the day to day operations: Tim McEntire and Phil May.  You will see Tim and Phil on the stall most Fridays and Saturdays. The six directors  – including Phil and Tim – give their time on voluntary basis.
