The Your Local Pantry model is built upon partnerships that help the franchise thrive throughout the UK.
SKylight (Part of Stockport Homes Group) first developed the Your Local Pantry model and now in 2022, the franchise is run via a partnership between SKylight and Church Action on Poverty.
However, this isn’t the only partnership that is key to Your Local Pantry’s success. FareShare - the UK's national network of charitable food redistributors – helps provide food to many of the Your Local Pantry outlets throughout the UK.
In September 2022, the Co-op and Your Local Pantry launched major partnership to support communities in cost of living crisis. The partnership, which is funded by Co-op Members, will see the Your Local Pantry network triple within three years from 75 to 225 pantries across the UK, with the addition of 150 new pantries, creating almost 650,000 visits by July 2025. The partnership will focus on communities where additional food solutions will make a significant difference to the cost of living.
