About The Local Pantry East BridgwaterThe Local Pantry is a project developed in partnership with local resident volunteers, which aims to stop food going to waste while providing low cost shopping for residents in Sedgemoor. We are part of a bigger project in partnership with the other Somerset districts to create 20 pantries across the region.
This pantry works by providing members (residents who sign up) with weekly food parcels for £3.50. Each parcel contains between 10-14 food items worth between £15 - £25 and contains a mixture of food types from dairy, including milk, butter and cheese, to meat, vegetarian meals, tinned foods, sauces and dry stored foods such as pasta and rice. Members are given a time slot between each week to pay for and pick up their food and have access to bespoke recipe cards and cooking information.
