The Pantry has now been open for 3 months and has been a huge success within the community!
We have just signed a 3 year lease and intend to continue on our journey to redirect waste and provide affordable shopping to everyone in the wider community!
We are open Monday to Saturday, 10am-3pm.
We had some unbelievable support this month!
We were awarded over £6000 from the DEFRA funding pot, via Huntingdonshire District Council!
We received £1,627 from South Cambs Council, for all the work we do to support young people leaving care!
We had some lovely support and donations from a local business –smith-nephew.com/uk
We are extremely grateful to all for the support you give to our organisation!
We are truly grateful to The Montagu Club in Huntingdon for donating hundreds of soft drinks, crisps and other snacks!
This is so helpful for our ever growing organisation and hugely appreciated by the people we support.
This month we have taken on a new Director – Sally Howell, one of our partners at Social Echo.
Sally is a fountain of knowledge, that shares the same passions we do. She will be a huge asset to our team!
This month, we also employed our first ever paid employee. Donnah will be our Assistant Manager at The Pantry in Huntingdon. She will be an incredible addition to our dedicated team.
We are currently exploring to options to have another store – so watch this space!
This month has been incredible!
We have supplied 5,646 meals to people in need across the wider community.
We have helped 15 families improve on their financial situations, by linking them with support agencies!
We have rescued an incredible 18 tonnes of food waste, which has provided around 11,000 meals! This is predominately through our new Pantry store!
We saved a whopping 9,443.2(PPM) of CO2!
We continue to work in friendship with Food For Nought and partners Social Echo, to help eliminate the need for food aid entirely and strive to live in a world where EVERYONE can afford to shop independently!
