Community Pantry

Community Pantry

In response to the cost of living crisis, we are launching the ENSA Community Pantry, with the help of the university and donations from students and staff. Everybody should have easy access to food, and at ENSA we are committed to helping our students when and where we can. 

The pantry is here to support students who are struggling financially with a little extra help to try and ensure they don’t go hungry. The pantry will stock food items with a long shelf-life, such as canned/tinned goods, jars of sauces, pasta, rice, cereals, biscuits and snacks.

If you are struggling with your bills, you are welcome to come and pick up a couple of items from the pantry for free. Stock is limited so we encourage students to be considerate when taking from the Community Pantry - please only take what you need.

Look out for our stalls around campus:

  • Monday 14 November, 11am-2pm: Sighthill Foyer
