Hey, I'm Abi and I'm you're new Pantry manager! I'm in BVetMed 3 this year but this is my 6th year at RVC so I've been around a while. The SU Pantry is brand new this year after the success of the food handouts system. So I'm imagining you have lots of questions.

What is the Pantry?

The pantry is a free support service on both campuses that will be available for you to come and collect basic necessities if you are struggling. We will be stocking food and toiletries to help you out in your time of need working alongside the advice centre and chaplaincy. 

Who are we there to help?

We're here for everyone, no matter year or course. If you're struggling for money or even for time during exam season we'll help make sure you have the basics to keep you going if you need us. We understand that asking for help can be difficult so we're committed to keeping any support confidential so please don't be afraid to reach out and let us help you. 


What are we stocking?

We have stock of a range of dried goods and toiletries, covering all diets and allergies but if you have any needs or concerns diet wise please email and we will be able to get other things in.
