About the Pantry Partership: 

We use food to create social momentum, helping people out of food poverty , enhancing life skills and reducing social isolation. We support people at home and in other parts of the world, providing cooking essentials to positively impact their health and empower them to create sustainable work for themselves. 

We hold cook clubs, drop in cooking, a surplus supper club, pop up restaurants and a regular First Friday Cafe. We are commissioned to run cookery workshops by local charities and associations. We also hold cooking parties in a location of your choice - all in our mission to bring people together to tackle food poverty through fun and engagement with low cost and local food. 

Our food is typically surplus food supplemented by local produce, all is supplied by local suppliers and to add interest to our work we also grow unusual and heritage fruit and vegetables on a local plot of land, surrounded by areas rife with opportunities for foraging.

This group is part of the #MakeSomeoneWelcome campaign run by Wiltshire CIL to ensure disabled and older people are at the heart of Wiltshire Communities.

Groups like this one have:

  • publicly signed up to the Make Someone Welcome campaign with a commitment to welcome disabled and older people (via Twitter #MakeSomeoneWelcome or by calling Wiltshire CIL Office).
  • always got someone in their group who is prepared to act as a 'meet and greeter' for new members.

Wiltshire CIL have:

  • offered this group training, giving them skills and understanding to welcome anybody and everybody.
  • helped the group identify people in their community and encouraged them to become active members.
  • helped advertise the group in the Wiltshire CIL newsletter to over 2000 people
  • worked on opportunities to link this group with other groups who have signed up to the campaign, to promote their work locally and work on strategies to attract disabled and older people.

If you would like to tell us your story about how this group welcomed you, let us know or talk to Abbie or Matt at Wiltshire at CIL on 0300 1233442 .
