Mobile Pantry (1)

Cheadle 55+ Mobile Pantry Launch

Posted 01 October 2020

Between April and July 2020, Your Local Pantry Stockport significantly scaled up and adapted its offer to deliver affordable food packages to the doorsteps of Stockport residents who were self-isolating due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

It became apparent that a high proportion of those accessing the service were older people in the Cheadle community. The Pantry wanted to continue to support those people to access low-cost food close to their home and the idea for the mobile pantry was formed.


The Cheadle 55+ mobile pantry will initially run as a partnership pilot project with Stockport Homes’ Independent Living Service to gauge demand, with plans to roll the scheme out to a wider area if successful.

The project has been made possible through a grant from the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) for an additional refrigerated vehicle. For £3.50 per week, pantry members can choose a range of food including fresh fruit and vegetables, meat products, cereal, tinned goods and much more.
