Fresh Start Pantry

Monday: 9AM - 4PM Tuesday: 9AM - 4PM
Welcome to Fresh Start Pantry Edinburgh

Fresh Start was founded in 1999 by a group of church members in Edinburgh with the mission to help people make a home for themselves. Fresh Start provides a range of services that help people who have experienced homelessness make a new start in their tenancies.

Fresh Start Your Local Pantry was set up in 2020 in order to provide the local community with ‘food with dignity’ and as part of our new community Hub.

For a small weekly subscription of £3.50 or £14 for 4 weeks, members of this pantry will be able to buy food, including fresh fruit and vegetables and store cupboard favourites that will often value £15-20 or more! 

We currently have 150 membership places available and these will increase to 150 as the pantry opens more frequently.

To volunteer  with us, complete an enquiry form online via our website or contact us directly at
