Our Pantry will be a dignified alternative to food banks, providing affordable and nutritious food in one of the most socially deprived areas of Glasgow. It will be housed in Govanhill Baths when it reopens as a Health & Wellbeing Centre. Food banks only offer short-term occasional support. But our Pantry will give ongoing and sustainable help directly for those facing food insecurity.
