Can you help support our community and save food from going to waste?
Our Community Pantry is open to everyone, without the need for a referral we aim to keep people fed and reduce the amount of perfectly good food going to landfill.
But we need your support!
We need to buy another fridge and freezer to store the amount of food that we rescue each week and the funds to keep them running.
The Bognor Community Pantry is self funded by EcoSwap and by your donations.
Please show your support by donating to our crowdfunder through the link below and help us reduce the needles waste.
What we do
EcoSwap CIC was founded in 2019, feeling that something needed to be done about the lack of community pride and spirit in the Bognor Regis area. EcoSwap aims to encourage people to care about their environment and those who live alongside them.
Two weeks before the first COVID-19 lockdown in 2021, EcoSwap opened their first store in Bognor Regis. Providing a range of sustainable, eco-friendly and hand made items including a refillery for cleaning supplies, toiletries and foods to encourage the local residents to reduce their plastic waste and carbon footprints, it also allows them to save money as they only need to buy as much as they need.
To further assist the community and bring people together, the community pantry was set up. Unlike the traditional foodbanks, people didn’t need referrals, or to even give their names. The community pantry is free for the whole community to access.
Other community projects have included home education workshops, arts & crafts workshops and knit & knatter sessions.
