What We Do

A little help with your weekly shop


Fresh Start Pantry

Fresh Start Pantry is a community food club offering food with dignity. The Pantry is for members of the local community who need help to make their money stretch further every week.

It is a way to make ends meet, help with your weekly budget and fill your shopping bag with a variety of ambient, fresh, chilled and frozen food. For a small membership fee of £4.50 you can walk away with £15-20 of shopping!

Memberships are available for one person per household, one visit per week. Your Local Pantry network is growing in Edinburgh; please note, you cannot be a member of more than one ‘Your Local Pantry’. Pantry memberships are popular, and we politely ask that all members use their memberships regularly. Any memberships that have not been used within 90 days will be lapsed.

Membership to the Pantry will be prioritised for residents of North Edinburgh living in Pilton, Muirhouse, Drylaw & Granton.
To become a member please drop in and see us, and our staff will sign you up or you can visit:

The Pantry opening hours are: 

Monday 9 - 12.30pm

Tuesday 9 - 12.30pm

Wednesday 2.30 - 5pm

Friday 9 - 12.30pm

The cost of living crisis is hitting Pantry stocks hard, you can support our Pantry and the local people and families that rely on us by adding a few extra items to your trolley when shopping. Our Pantry shopping list can be found here. Thank you for your support.
