Lucie’s Pantry provides a sustainable and affordable source of food and household essentials to members of the Pendleton community struggling to make ends meet through debt, illness or low income. Together we’re providing great food for great people.

How does it work?

People who want to use the social supermarket become a member of Lucie’s Pantry. Members pay £2.50 per week and are able to choose items to the value of approximately £15 each week.

Membership is limited by need and geographical distance to the outlet. In addition to food and household items, members are offered additional support including a regular Citizens Advice surgery. 

By becoming a member of Lucie’s Pantry, individuals help to support others in their community. The more members who use the social supermarket, the more quality items can be sourced allowing even more people to benefit.
