Community Pantries

At Cyrenians, we believe that everyone has the right to dignified access to high quality food. As part of our work tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness we’re determined to ensure no one unnecessarily suffers from food insecurity. 

Our Community Pantries offer a unique, low cost way to access a variety of foods, including Chilled and fresh produce, and ambient cupboard staples. 

"One of the best things about the pantry is that it has allowed the kids to try different things. It is difficult on a budget to vary the shopping, but the pantry has allowed us to do this. This has been great for me and my family." - Pantry member

Our community pantries are membership based with prices starting at £1 per 10 items. A one-off £1 joining fee is required at your first visit, and membership is limited at each location. 

If you’d like to find your nearest community pantry you can check out our events calendar.

As part of the community pantry experience we have also created a Pantry Cook book that shares delicious recipes from our members. Using items bought at our pantries these recipes will help you explore new food items and get experimental in the kitchen. 

If you are a community centre or business who would be able to host a community pantry once a fortnight we would love to hear from you; please get in touch at michelledennis@cyrenians.scot.
