We offer a welcoming approach and treat all members with the dignity that they deserve. KLSB have worked alongside community partners including Stenhousemuir FC, local councillors, local small businesses & various homeless charities and supported accommodation.
Members pay a small fee whenever they visit the pantry where they can pick up to 10 items of food, household essentials, personal products and / or pet food. Depending on availability we may also be able to offer free items which will be over the members allocation.
We do not operate like a food bank where pantry users are only entitled to a small amount of goods for a small period of time. We offer our members a place on the pantry at a cost of only£2.50 per visit. This cost entitles the member to call into the pantry once per week and pick items of shopping. As we are a non-profit group all funds received are reinvested back into the pantry meaning that there is always stock available for all. We offer our members fresh fruit, bread & eggs.
We are looking for volunteers to help at our Community Food Pantry in Stenhousemuir. Duties will include:-
• Moving and sorting stock which requires a level of physical fitness
• Sorting stock into dates and rotating stock within those dates
• Restocking shelves with cupboard items
• Making up recipe bags with ingredients
• Recording fridge and freezer temperatures
• Assisting service users visiting the pantry
• Cash handling of fees and donations
The pantry is open 3 days per week, although volunteers are in the pantry out with these times sorting stock and restocking shelves. We are looking for volunteer commitment of at least 2 hours per week for a minimum term of 6 weeks, this is to enable volunteers to build relationships with our service users.
