Plenty SE13’s crowdfunding campaign has proved a great success. Alina and Joel, local residents and owners of Cafe Oscar’s, have
r raised more than £14,000 of their £18,978 from 257 supporters.
Plenty will be a wholefood pantry selling those kitchen essentials by weight. As well as all the usual dry goods, it will stock a range of grains, pulses, beans, nuts and dried fruits alongside herbs, spices, oils and vinegars. There will also be a range of wines on tap.
“We are passionate about food and drink, so making good quality food more available in our local area is something close to our hearts,” say Alina and Joel in comments attached to the crowdfunding page.
“By reducing packaging and focusing on ethical supply chains we hope to create an opportunity for everyone to move towards a more sustainable, less impactful way of shopping, eating and living.”

Plenty joins the high street: Alina and Joel of Oscars to open whole food pantry in autumn 2021
Alina and Joel who have owned Oscars in Ladywell for three years are branching out and setting up a whole food pantry, Plenty SE13, just across the road from the cafe.
They are taking over the old Revive My Device premises in the high street and are planning to open a shop selling dry goods and other essentials with almost everything available to buy-by- weight.
Basic cupboard essentials such as different types of flour, baking powder, dried yeast & sugars will be available either to buy-by-weight or be sold in packaging which is easily recyclable
They will also offer a range of grains, pulses, beans, nuts and dried fruits alongside herbs, spices, oils and vinegars plus a small selection of wines on tap.
Alina and Joel say their goal is to make “good food and sustainable choices more available to the local community.”
“By reducing packaging, focusing on ethical supply chains and promoting plant based products we hope to create an opportunity for everyone to move towards a more sustainable, less impactful way of shopping, eating and living.”
They hope to source many of their products from small independent businesses and local suppliers.
The couple have shared their plans for Plenty on Facebook and Instagramand hope to have the business up and running by the autumn.
“We are very excited to be starting a new business in Ladywell and bringing one of the empty units on the high street back into use,” says Joel.
The couple will be taking on the lion’s share of the necessary investment themselves but will also look at a crowd funding campaign to raise funds from the local community.
