The Abbey Centre Community Pantry is now open, providing access to affordable food for local people.

For a small weekly subscription of £5, members of the Community Pantry can select a number of items each week, with a typical retail value totalling over £40! We offer as much choice as we can, including fresh fruit and vegetables, store cupboard favourites, household cleaning and personal hygiene items. Membership is open to the community and local families are strongly encouraged to join.

The Community Pantry offers a sustainable and long-term way to help people make ends meet. Members pay a small weekly fee, for which they can choose at least ten items each week, along with additional opportunities of volunteering and training.

To sign up for the Abbey Centre Pantry, please register as a member of the Abbey Centre, then contact us using the details below.

We’re also looking for volunteers to support the Community Pantry. Find out more about volunteering at the Abbey Centre, including how to sign up.
