Welcome to Kilcooley Pantry: Nourishing Communities, Reducing Waste
At Kilcooley Pantry, we take pride in being more than just a Social Supermarket – we are a community-driven initiative committed to alleviating food and hygiene poverty and promoting healthy eating habits in the heart of Bangor. Our mission is simple: to create a positive impact on physical wellbeing while fostering a sustainable approach to living.
Our Vision: Reducing Food and Hygiene Poverty
Kilcooley Pantry is designed with a clear vision – to reduce food and hygiene poverty across the city of Bangor. Through innovative programs, educational workshops, and accessible resources, we aim to empower individuals and families to make healthier choices while minimizing waste. By addressing the root causes of poverty, we strive to create lasting change and build a resilient community.
The Journey So Far: From Pilot to Community Hub
Originally launched as a small pilot scheme, Kilcooley Pantry quickly garnered immense local support. The overwhelming demand prompted us to expand our services, resulting in a remarkable 125% increase in membership. As of now, we are fully subscribed with a growing waiting list, a testament to the essential role Kilcooley Pantry plays in supporting our community.
A Lifeline for Families: Affordable Weekly Shopping
Kilcooley Pantry is more than a food store; it’s a lifeline for families and individuals facing economic challenges. Members can do a weekly shop for a nominal amount, enabling them to stretch limited budgets, meet essential needs, and maintain a sense of dignity. By providing affordable access to quality products, Kilcooley Pantry ensures that no one in our community has to face the hardships of food scarcity alone.
