Feeding Britain has, in partnership with like-minded organisations, directly established or supported 96 affordable food settings across our network. These range from pantries and food clubs to food buses and citizens’ supermarkets.
These settings are making food and other essentials more affordable and accessible to over 14,000 households on low incomes – thereby helping to prevent crises and the accompanying need for food banks.
Between them, households are saving over £3.8 million per year through their membership of these projects. On average, members spend around £4.70 each time they shop and take home food and other items worth around £17.
“The pantry has been an absolute lifesaver for us this year and the extra support that is offered during holidays is very gratefully received by us, during what has been an extremely long and difficult time for our family.” – Pantry member
“Can I just take this opportunity to thank both yourself and your team for all the hard work into making the community shop and the hampers we have received throughout the year. I visit the shop on a weekly basis and it helps so much with my food shopping….so thank you to all of you.” – Pantry member
