Cherry Tree Pantry
During lockdown the centre manager, trustees, staff and volunteers have worked incredibly hard to support the community. Seeing the struggles people were facing and the number of families going without food, the need for affordable food was quickly identified. The Cherry Tree Pantry was formed.
From Community Room to Pantry
The community room at the centre was turned into a Pantry shop, with support from Fareshare and a number of local businesses.
The Pantry allows people to visit once a week and pay just £4 for 10 items, from a choice of goods including fresh meat, cheese, frozen food, cleaning products, tinned food, cereal etc. as well as unlimited fresh fruit and vegetables.
