The Shepherds Pantry
The Shepherd’s Pantry is a portfolio of community-focused, food and hospitality amenities operated by Staplehurst Free Church. Alongside our hub of other activities these contribute to delivering our charitable aims of using our resources and facilities to make positive contributions to the health and wellbeing of local people.
Welcome to our Community Fridge
The Community Fridge is one aspect of our Shepherd’s Pantry initiative. It is open to everyone to help save on food bills and reduce the amount of food that goes to waste. It is a food redistribution initiative which provides free access to food which would otherwise go to waste because it is surplus to the requirements of a local store, supermarket or producer. Our team of volunteers collect and display the food in the Fridge and on the adjacent larder shelves.
