Coming December 2022. Find out when the new Food Pantry opens by signing up to the Paulsgrove Food Pantry Facebook Page. Full and regular information updates will be posted on their Facebook page.


A Food Pantry can be accessed by anyone and allows local people within the Paulsgrove and Wymering area to access a weekly shop for a small fee circa £4 -5 (users walk away with more than £20 worth of items). Users register to join the Food Pantry and can be kept up to date on the latest offerings and special giveaways.

Additionally, Portsmouth City Council has also launched a Cost of Living help hub which can help you to access local support.

The Portsmouth City Council Cost of Living hub is your guide to the help that’s available for Portsmouth residents via the City Council.

We know times are tough for people in Portsmouth and many of you are feeling the squeeze. If you are struggling, there is a lot of support out there and we’re here to help. Select the links in each section to find the support and advice that’s right for you.

If you prefer to speak to someone, or if you have a friend or relative who isn’t online, you can call our cost of living helpline on 023 9284 1047 and our friendly customer service team will be able to help you find the support you need. The helpline is available from 9am-5pm on weekdays (closes at 4.30pm on Fridays).
