The Stockport Pantry team has been named a finalist in the UK Business Awards for ‘Team of the Year’.
These awards recognise the team’s innovative approach to supporting the most vulnerable in their communities when they needed it the most.
During the pandemic, Your Local Pantry which is part of Foundations Stockport provided local people with an affordable food offer whilst they were shielding or self-isolating. A delivery service was also provided, to enable the service to reach more vulnerable customers that may not have been accessing the pantry previously.
The winners will be announced on July 8th during a virtual ceremony.
Roger Phillips, Chair of Foundations Stockport, said:
“Congratulations to the Your Local Pantry team, your dedication to supporting our most vulnerable customers is inspiring and this nomination is very well deserved. The pantries have been a lifeline for so many people during this difficult time, you should all be very proud. Congratulations to all.”
