Making a meaningful impact through the medium of food & drink.
“It is clear that Social Pantry is an organisation truly committed to making a positive difference, as well as providing exceptional service. They have taken a brave, forward thinking, view of what it means for a business to be sustainable”
We take care to be socially aware in everything we do. We’re the leader in ex-offender employment in hospitality and we try to challenge the industry norm with our culture – from a no-shouty kitchen to flexible working environments to ex-offender mentoring, it’s an important part of Social Pantry. So whilst we deliver an excellent service, our clients can rest assured that what goes on behind the scenes at Social Pantry is socially responsible.
Since 2015, we’ve been working with several charities and suppliers that contribute to prison reformation and crime prevention and we’re excited to take this one step further with the opening of Feltham.
Our site at HMP/YOI Feltham will be opening later in 2022. It will double up as a staff café space and operate as a training programme for offenders. The young men will undergo a 3-month training programme in the kitchen and upon release, be offered employment in Social Pantry’s production kitchen. The café menu will feature homegrown vegetables from inside the prison and honey from their bees.
