RCS Community Pantry in Andover

The RCS Food Pantry

Whilst they currently continue to help support vulnerable families, they want to help assist everyone in the long term with their Pantry.

What is a Pantry? 

A Pantry is “get more for less”. It is to help and encourage families that need a little bit of support to manage and budget through these tough times. They aim to help many local Andover residents on a weekly basis.

What will you find in the Pantry?

You will find a range of fresh, frozen and general foods. This will change on a weekly basis, based on what they receive in from their suppliers. Occasionally, we will have free giveaway items.

How to purchase Pantry goods?

You pay a £5 membership fee, receiving goods valued at £15 plus (limited to 1 shop per week).

Their opening hours are Monday, Tuesday ,Thursdays and Fridays 9.30am to 12pm, and Wednesday 4pm to 7pm ,all year round. They are based on the Longmeadow Centre, Cricketer’s Way, Andover, SP10 5DE
