This is an update we’ve never wanted to share but we need your help. We know everyone has suffered some sort of difficulty in the past couple of years but the pandemic aswell as other unexpected costs has hit us particularly hard and we find ourselves in the position of asking if you can help us get back on track and doing what we do best!

Thank you to all of our customers old and new who continue to support us and our staff and helpers who make Rice Up what it is. Please help us to continue providing Southampton with an escape from the High Street; somewhere you know everything is kinder to the planet, its workers and of course animals. We know we can move on sustainably if we are able to survive this challenging time. Thank you from everyone at Rice Up Wholefoods!
