Community larders

Our community larders are here to help you.

Register with the larder then you can visit weekly. Friendly volunteers are ready to welcome you.

Products available

Products will vary from larder to larder, but will generally include:

  • fresh, dry and tinned food items
  • sanitary products
  • toiletries
  • household cleaning products

Membership and payment

Most larders operate on a membership basis, to help manage stock levels.

For a small fee (usually £1) members can purchase essential items for a much reduced price. For example, four items for £1, maximum spend £10.

Each larder will have its own arrangements for membership and payment.
