Community pantries

Community pantries provide groceries at a lower rate than shops and supermarkets

Anyone can apply to become a member of a community pantry – there is no eligibility testing. You can become a member and for a weekly membership fee, pantries provide groceries at a lower cost than supermarkets or shops, offering a range of fresh, frozen, and store cupboard foods which vary from week to week.
