The article which tells the human stories of people who rely on Your Local Pantry outlets can be read on this link: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/i-cant-afford-put-lights-22174426
In the article, one Your Local Pantry regular visitor said, "I felt embarrassed going to the foodbank. I felt like a failure. Here [Your Local Pantry] it's different - we have all found a bargain store that's our secret, I hope not too many people come!"
The Your Local Pantry team hope that press articles such as this one, will inspire more people across the UK to offer help to those in need and look to mend the society which means that Your Local Pantry outlets are necessary in the first place.
