Community pantry

Welcome to our community pantry, which opened in January 2022.

When we had to close our doors during the Covid-19 pandemic, we made and delivered food parcels to support the Mansbridge community. We recognised we could continue to support our community by opening a pantry.

The pantry is open Monday to Friday, 8am - 2pm.

Our pantry is a membership-based scheme, with an annual £1 fee. Once you’ve joined, you will be able to access food and some household goods once a week.

You can get either 10 items for £3.50 or 15 items for £5. Not only will you save money, you’ll be helping to tackle food waste by preventing good food from going to land waste.

We work with different providers like FareShare and local supermarkets. And we’ll be sharing our top recipes to use with the produce available in the pantry.

What are the benefits?

  • It’s your choice. We don’t prepare food bags, you pick what items you would like
  • Anyone can join – our only criteria is that you are a resident of Southampton
  • You can save money
  • You can meet new people
  • You’ll be supporting your local community
  • And we’ll have volunteering opportunities too
