Repton Community Trust

People's Pantry

Our People's Pantry project is run by community members to address food insecurity. Seventy local people formed a Facebook group and have started to run the pantry together. We provide free donations of food and hygiene items to people in need.

How it works

Please note we are only able to accept requests from people living in the Ashford area of Kent.

We've adapted how we do things to make it safer for you and us. Heres how it will work:

  1. If you are in need of food or hygiene items, check out the list below of free items we have in stock
  2. Call or email us and request the items you need
  3. We'll arrange a time slot for you to come and collect them from Repton Connect Community Centre. We'll leave the items outside the door for you.

No rules, no fuss, no referrals. If you need something, you're welcome to request it. We also want to make life as easy as we can for keyworkers so please feel free to contact us too.

We haven't forgotten people who aren't able to leave their house. Just contact us and we'll try to help.

If you would like to request items, or make a donation, please call 01233 808023 or email info@reptonct.uk.
