Who we are

Our vision is to enable and support positive changes in the lives of the local community. We do this by helping those of all ages, gender and race in meeting their personal needs and encouraging them to become self-sufficient. We promote a healthier lifestyle in our personal service and build strong relationships by training volunteers to play a vital role in serving at the Pantry and in their community.

Provide emergency food, children's clothing and other essential goods to feed and clothe those in need.
Signpost people to agencies and organisations that can help those in financial hardship.
Signpost people to agencies and organisations that can help those in financial hardship.
Provide a place for those people to come and talk to someone in confidence and to offer emotional support to those in need.
Assist those that require help to source a wide range of resources online and to 
create a CV. 
 

How we help

In the UK the average person using a food bank will do so twice a year, with an estimated 590,00 different people requiring the use of a Foodbank during 2016/2017.

 

We believe that when you are experiencing difficult life experiences, it isn't just food that you need. You may be looking for help with filling in complicated forms, planning a budget, debt counselling or even just talk things through.

 

Visit our premises at 7 Swan Street, Brechin where you will be able to choose from our range of food, toiletries, children's clothing and household products. We will help you to fill a form and discuss how best to help you through this difficult time. We  partner with a wide aside range of local services and will do our very best to signpost you to those who can help you further.

 

We are hoping  to set up a community kitchen, where we can teach the basics of how to cook and prepare essential healthy food.
