Lucie’s Pantry is a social supermarket located at the main Emmaus Salford base on Fitzwarren Street in Pendleton.
Our Pantry provides a sustainable and affordable source of food and household essentials to members of the Pendleton community struggling to make ends meet through debt, illness or low income. Together we’re providing great food for great people.
Emmaus Salford was the first Emmaus community to launch and run a pantry. Due to the success and social impact of Lucie’s Pantry another two Emmaus communities have launched their own.
People who want to use the social supermarket become a member of Lucie’s Pantry. Members pay £2.50 per week and are able to choose items to the value of approximately £15 each week.
Membership is limited by need and geographical distance to the outlet. In addition to food and household items, members are offered additional support including a regular Salford CAB surgery.
By becoming a pantry member, individuals help to support others in their community. The more members who use the social supermarket, the more quality items can be sourced allowing even more people to benefit.
To become a member all you need to do is complete a short application form available online here, from Lucie’s Pantry, Salford CAB, Salford JobcentrePlus or local housing providers. Once signed up as a member, you will be allocated a weekly time slot to come and do your shopping. Our Pantry is open every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday (10am-3pm) but it’s important that members stick to their allocated time slot.
Lucie’s Pantry is a not-for-profit social supermarket run by Emmaus Salford with support from a wide range of organisations including Bell Group, Clarion Housing Group, Edward Holt Trust, FareShare, Great Places, Guinness Partnership, Keepmoat, Loaves and Fishes, Salford Citizens Advice, Salford Foodbank and Salix Homes.
