Pantry manager Liz Edwards said: “It has been a pleasure going out and meeting people from all these businesses; people are so willing to help.”

There are also new donation points at Bishop Wordsworth School, organised by its Sixth Form for parents, staff and students, and at Salisbury Mosque for members of the mosque’s community to support the pantry’s work. Most recently, Cookshop in Salisbury became the pantry’s newest food donor.

Pantry manager Angela Brenchly said: “Having the local business community come together to support the Salisbury Pantry is amazing. We have applications for new memberships every week during this cost-of-living crisis. Without this support, we cannot run our service.”

If you are a shop, organisation or workplace that would like to be part of the Salisbury Network by collecting or hosting a donation point, get in touch at or drop in to your nearest one with a tin, box or packet of food.
