LLANRUMNEY HALL PANTRY
For all news, updates and information on the Llanrumney Hall Pantry, see below.
WHAT IS THE PANTRY?
Llanrumney Hall Pantry is part of the Your Local Pantry franchise and is a community facility that aims to reduce food poverty in Cardiff East and provide affordable and accessible food and household essentials to the local community. It is run by the Community Trust and in its first 2 weeks alone became the fastest growing Your Local Pantry franchise in the UK.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This is one of the most common questions we get asked and it is in fact quite simple: You pay just £5 per week and this gives you access to the Pantry when it is open (Thursday 09:00-15:00).
This £5 will grant you access to the Pantry and allow you to choose 10 items. These 10 items are made up of 3 'Hearts' and 7 'Diamonds'. The Diamonds are any item worth £1.50 and less and the Hearts are any item worth £1.50 and more.
Generally, these 10 items will come to between £15-£25 worth of goods, giving you the opportunity to quadruple your value for money.
WHEN ARE WE OPEN?
At the moment, the Pantry is open just one day a week - Thursday from 9am - 3pm.
We are looking to extend these operational hours and are considering opening for a second day each week however this is dependent on resources and donations.
HOW DO I APPLY?
It doesn't matter your age, employment status, income or anything else - there is only one current requirement to be eligible to join the Pantry membership and that is that you are a Llanrumney resident. We are however looking to extend the radius so that surrounding areas can join. We suggest you sign up regardless as even if you aren't a Llanrumney resident, once we are able to extend to further regions, you will then be automatically accepted onto the membership scheme.

HOW CAN I DONATE?
So far, the Llanrumney Hall Pantry has seen a remarkable £9,000 donated to the project.
The majority of the money will be used to offer free Pantry memberships to those most in need so that they can access essential household items at no cost when they are in need of some help. We hope to raise enough additional funds at some point in the future to purchase a second hand electric vehicle so that we can pick up food collections from donors.
