About the pantry.
The KLSB pantry was set up in late 2019 to enable the community of Stenhousemuir and Larbert, as well as the outlying areas a place to come and have a store that supports and accommodates those living close to or below the breadline. We are non judgemental and everyone is entitled to join without the need for a referral. We are however limited to the members that we have and anyone that joins whilst the membership is full will be placed on our waiting list.
What can a member expect?
Our members are able to come along and pick their own groceries whilst having a chat with our staff who are always on hand. The groceries that a member can choose from varies every week but will quite often include fresh bread, cakes, milk & eggs, as well as frozen meals, pizza, pies and meats. We also have plenty of personal hygiene products and household items. Add tinned and ambient items into the mix and we have a well stocked shop that is second to none.
How much does it cost?
We charge each member a set fee of £10.00 per month. we are a non-profit group and all fees that come in are used to restock the pantry. The fee entitles the members to come along and use the pantry once per week. The fees cannot be rolled over so each pantry member is advised to use the pantry as many times as allowed.
Can I use the pantry for a short while?
Absolutely. We have been set up to enable anyone who has a financial difficulty during a month to come along for a short term only, these issues might be an unexpected bill from a broken down car to a burnt out washing machine. Spaces are available to anyone who simply need a short term hand.
I was a previous member, can I join again?
Yes of course you can, contact us for more information on re-joining the pantry.
