About the Pantry
The People’s Pantry is a membership-led shop that provides good quality food at a subsidised rate.
The Pantry stock’s a range of essential items, from store cupboard staples, like pasta, tinned tomatoes, and coffee, to fruit and vegetables, and baked goods. Over time we expect to be able to offer a wider range of food and essentials. Our stock will mainly be provided by Fareshare, a food redistribution charity, and by other local supermarkets and food providers.
Anyone can become a member of The People’s Pantry for £3.50 a year. They can then do a weekly shop for £2.50, which will provide a minimum of £15 worth of food. Members also have the option of paying a solidarity price of £3.50 per shop, to fund a small number of subsidised memberships.
