Monday to Friday
Now open on the Sherfield Walkway, The Pantry is a new pop-up concept that offers everyday essentials at low, wholesale prices.
We know that everyone is having to look after their finances a little more tightly at the moment so, utilising the College’s bulk-buying power, we offer foods such as rice, pasta, cereals and vegetables at significantly discounted rates.
You're able to pick up a pre-packed (no plastic) grab bag or weigh out your own produce.
It’s a new system, so we welcome your suggestions and ideas on what you’d like to see in stock! And like all Taste Imperial outlets, The Pantry is operated on a not-for-profit basis.
What do we offer?
In order to keep prices very low, we focus on food staples that we can purchase wholesale and then pass on to our community at significantly reduced prices. Below is a selection of what we offer, although there are additional products in-store not listed here.
As we're buying products in bulk and then absorbing the costs of staffing and space, we have to focus on goods that have a low price point, store well and don't require vacuum packing - this is why you likely won't see things like coffee beans, avocados, or chocolate.
