Community Pantry

Our Community Pantry is rapidly expanding, providing food to members of our local community who find themselves in need. We offer twice weekly food boxes, filled with a variety of fresh foods as well as keeping the shelves stacked with everyday staples of tinned/dry food and household essentials like toilet paper, health and sanitary products. These are all available for a donation on a pay-what-you-can basis, no referral needed. We also offer fresh meals prepared on site by Cath, which are frozen and available anytime for a donation. All fresh ingredients, no added nasties, and affordable!

Examples of meals available include: 

Gammon, Leek & Mushroom Pie

We started our Pantry so that we could help people in need whilst saving perfectly edible food from being thrown in the bin. We ask users to be mindful of what and how much they are taking and if unsure to ask one of the team.

The pantry is open every day 9am-5pm, and is self service.

Don’t forget to bring your own bag!
