Opened in 1975 by Govinda and Meeta Lovage, Food For All is a non-profit health food store which started trading in Stoke Newington by offering grains, pulses, herbs, flours and wholefoods that were bought in bulk and packed on the premises. In time it grew to stock a wider and increasingly diverse range of health foods, supplements, cosmetics, herbs, oils and tinctures. Presently we stock more than one thousand lines.
