The St Giles Pantries: Empowering through Nutrition

The Pantries are a food hub with a difference.  They offer an emergency safety net and a sustainable route out of poverty within six months.

What They Do

The Pantries offer nutritious and healthy food to families and individuals struggling to feed themselves.  People pay a small weekly subscription of £3.50 and then can choose their food as they would in any other supermarket shop.

Enabling people to pay a subscription gives them choice and dignity.  Whilst shopping at The Pantry, expert advice and support is on hand from our Peer Advisors who can help them address any barriers they are facing.  They aim to address these within six months by which time people will have become independent and equipped to manage any future issues themselves.

All of them serve the local communities in the areas in which they are based. The food is sustainably sourced and would otherwise have gone to landfill.

Our first Pantry was established in West London. However, the Covid pandemic led to the establishment of further Pantries in:

  • South London
  • Leeds
  • Coventry

All of them serve the local communities in which they are based.

The food on offer is sustainably sourced and would otherwise have gone to landfill.
