Shevington Community Pantry
STOCK UP FOR LESS!
Shevington Community Pantry is a local sustainable food distribution service.
We now have 300+ members and would like to ask more members of our community to sign up to our environmental project!
What is the Pantry?
Shevington Community Pantry is and connected to Fur Clemt in Wigan – this link takes you to their facebook page Shevington Community Pantry ·
Our volunteers work alongside Fur Clemt. We help to intercept food from large supermarkets and food distributors, which would otherwise have gone to waste. We then sell this food at a heavily discounted price.
Where are you based?
In Shevington at St Anne’s Parish Centre, next to the church on Church Lane. The postcode is WN6 8BD.
How much does it cost?
Joining fee is £5 for the year, although funded memberships are available (please ask when you sign up). Items vary in price, from 25p – see overleaf for the points system.
What type of foods do you stock?
We have a range depending on the suppliers’ surplus food. Typical items are:
- Biscuits & snacks
- Fresh fruit
- Fresh veg
- Soft drinks
- Pasta & noodles
Is the food going off?
Some food is past its BBE date, and some is close to use-by – so needs eating/freezing soon. Some is well in date, just in damaged packaging or surplus stock. We ask everyone to judge the quality by taste.
Can anyone join the Pantry?
Yes! We just ask that you only use one Wigan Sustainable Food Outlet (eg Fur Clemt or the Pantry). We can transfer Fur Clemt memberships to the Pantry free of charge.
Come along and save food waste, save money and save a trip to the supermarket. Please check our Facebook and Twitter for updates and to find out more!
