Food pantries are member led neighbourhood hubs where the local community can access top-quality food including fresh fruit and veg, frozen and chilled food, meat and dairy products, and long-life tinned and packaged food. You don't need to be referred to become a member of a food pantry. Instead members pay a small subscription of a few pounds a week, and in return can choose groceries worth many times more, often saving up to £1,000 a year on shopping bills.
Pantries are just like a shop, in that you choose the food you want from the shelves.
