Cameras from ITV Meridian recently visited Burgess Hill Pantry

They interviewed Pantry Member Claire Handford, who has been a member since April and relies on the pantry to ease the financial pressure of feeding her children, mother and father who she lives with.

"It makes a massive difference to our family. It means that I don't have to worry about what we've got coming in."

"It also means that I can give my children the little treats, a trip to the cinema once a month for example, which I wouldn't have been able to do without the pantry."
