Morecambe Pantry is a food redistribution and Outreach project serving the local area of Morecambe Parish Church in partnership with Great Places Housing Group, FareShare and Eggcup (both food redistribution charities). We are excited to be working with them and cannot wait to provide this service to our local area.
For our pantry, each customer will become a member and pay a fee of £4 per visit. They then receive approximately £20 worth of food which they choose themselves from the stock we have in. On top of this each customer will be offered the option of joining a food co-operative for an extra £1 per visit. This will take the full cost up to £5 per visit, but then includes 2litres of milk, an 800g loaf of bread and 6 free range eggs.
Customers will sign in at the welcome desk and be met by a volunteer who will seat them in the café area in the hall, get them a drink and talk with them whilst they wait. This team member will take them down to the food area and help them with their choices and packing. The same team member will then see them back out to the exit or café area if required.
