Supporting the Local Community  

Pantry Ethos

 

  • For a small fee, the Pantry gives access to good quality food
  • The model works to help reduce people getting to crisis point by providing access to services
  • Aims to move away from the foodbank model to a more dignified and sustainable model
  • Community led, empowering communities 
  • Promotes access to nutritious food like meat, vegetables and fruit.
  • Provide training for volunteers in customer care, health and safety, food hygiene as well as providing experience in retail, thus upskilling the community in preparation to move onto employment
  • Reduced carbon footprint helping the climate change agenda. A large proportion of surplus food would normally end up in Landfill, however the Pantry helps to reduce this by distributing the surplus food.

 

Pantry Objectives

 

  • Locally run and managed, putting the community at the heart of decision making.
  • Provides access to low cost good quality nutritious food
  • Helping reduce our climate footprint through the redistribution of surplus food
  • Upskilling the community, improving employment prospects
  • Improve health outcomes, through conception of healthy food
  • Improve emotional wellbeing and social isolation through the hub model of the pantry.
