The Pantry

With a continuing supply of surplus food from local food producers, retailers and distributors and also growing demand, the Pantry was launched offering core products – bread, potatoes, vegetables and fruit.  It’s all on a “Pay as you Feel” basis. No proof of identity required. Paul and his volunteers are always available to assist all enquiries. Stock constantly changing – we never know what will be collected next.

It’s tucked away in the passageway under the Methodist Church providing both a warm welcome and important groceries. Some days you’ll even find flowers for you to take home.

Community Fridge

In non-virus times, the fridge is open every day and enables choices throughout the week. Chilled foods, dairy products, salads and sandwiches, vegetables and fruit. The Community Fridge enables us to reach more people in need and saves even more food from landfill. Through generous funding from Nottingham Building Society, via their Grants for Good Causes, the fridge is now up and running next to the Bunker. You can help yourself to whatever is on offer. It’s a little pot luck but full of pleasant surprises! PAY AS YOU FEEL.

The passageway has also been brought to life by stunning street art painted by local artist Nathan Murdoch: “It’s wonderful to find that food which could so easily be binned is being put to great use. We’re so pleased to have created the artwork, but it was an emotional project, seeing and hearing first-hand the impact Second Helpings has on people’s lives.”
