Your Local Pantry was set up by Stockport Homes, a social landlord, to help local residents save money on their food bills. Pantries were also set up to provide volunteering and training opportunities.
We set up our first Pantry, Penny Lane, in 2013. Since then we have opened Pantries in Brinnington, Mottram Street (town centre) and Bridgehall.
The infographic below tells you about some of the outcomes our Pantries have achieved so far.
- 9 volunteers have gone on to find full-time employment
- 1,156 households have benefitted from the Pantry Scheme
