Tolworth Recreation Centre- Your Local Pantry
Helping those facing difficult times
Tolworth Recreation Centre is Your Local Pantry
Why did we do this?
In September 2022, we became a Your Local Pantry in partnership with City Changer Projects and Doxa Deo Community Church. Since then we have transformed our old café area into a space to house this initiative.
The Your Local Pantry is a scheme that supports those facing difficulty by providing members access to purchase a weekly food shop including fresh fruit, vegetables and family favourites required to stock up the cupboard and fridge in return for a small weekly fee.
Why Community is so important
By partnering with Your Local Pantry, it has helped us use the centre to enable families that need it the most to access essential items, taking that little bit of pressure off each week and allowing us to put community at the forefront of our minds.
The volunteers at Your Local Pantry have worked hard to make a difference and turn old spaces into new spaces to create a scheme that we are proud to be a part of.
