The Pantry St Giles RGB (2)

Empowering through nutrition

The Pantry is a food hub with a difference. We offer an emergency safety net and a sustainable route out of poverty within six months.

What The Pantry offers

The Pantry offers personal face-to-face support along with high quality, nutritious and healthy food to those struggling to feed themselves and their families - those held back by poverty, addiction and mental health issues.

We couple healthy food with a healthy shopping experience. Our knowledgeable and experience staff provide impartial information and advice along with support from our trained Peer Advisors, who help address the underlying issues leading to poverty.  People using the Pantry pay a weekly subscription of £3.50 and in return are able to access an abundance of affordable, nutritious food. This in conjunction with the advice and guidance help them move towards independence.  By coupling healthy food with expert advice, we empower individuals and families to overcome the barriers they face and break the cycle of poverty.

The food distributed by the Pantry is sustainably sourced and would otherwise gone to landfill. The Pantry offers a sustainable model for both decreasing food dependency in lower income families and responding to overproduction.

The Pantry: Client stories

"The St Giles Pantry has been a blessing. I am able to cook and eat a balanced meal every day. The staff are on hand to help me with any social issues I may have and can and will signpost me to another agency that can help me. They are kind and friendly, polite and never put me down or look down on me. They encourage me to pick healthy things and help me. The Pantry provides good food for people like myself who are struggling. Confidentiality is their policy and have great discretion compared to a food bank where everyone knows your business and people know what you’re going in there for. Without this service I would have had to skip meals. I am so grateful to you at St Giles for providing this service. I am truly grateful."

"You cannot begin to understand and I have no words to express how The Pantry is helping this young family by providing them with healthy nutritious top-ups."
