Millom Network Centre’s Food Pantry has two goals. First, help reduce the amount of supermarket food that goes to waste. Second, help the local community save some money.
A typical Food Pantry box containing bread, vegetables, tinned foods, and other assorted items.
The Food Pantry achieves both of these goals with one solution. We collect a variety of products from supermarkets that are still perfectly useable but have moved beyond their sell-by dates.
Then we sort these products into food boxes, ready to be sold on to the local community at a low cost! The food finds a good home instead of a landfill and peoples’ weekly grocery shopping becomes a lot cheaper.
The Food Pantry is for anyone in Millom who wants to get involved. If you want a food box for yourself then simply contact us for a registration form! Once registered you can choose to pay on the day in cash or you can pay via our preferred method of a weekly standing order.
Please note that there’s a maximum of 2 boxes per customer!
The pantry runs between 9:30 and 12:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Boxes cost £3.50 if you pick them up in person or £4.50 if you want your box delivered to you.
