Cyrenians runs the Central and South East Scotland branch of FareShare.

FareShare is the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste through the redistribution of surplus food to frontline charities and community groups.

Cyrenians has received funding from Scottish Government to trial the delivery of a pantries (a ‘pop up shop’) within 8 established Community Cooks over a 6 month period. The people accessing the clubs are usually experiencing food poverty and have a range of support needs.

We will work with the Community Groups to implement a pantry system; delivering a wide range of healthy food (including fresh options) and offering these to members.

Membership will be made available to the Cook Club attendees. We estimate that 15-30 people per Club would access the pantry so this should have a reach of 120-240 over the pilot period.

We are looking for a dynamic and highly motivated Pantry Coordinator to lead on developing and delivering the pantry model. You should have excellent communication skills and the confidence to work with people from a wide range of backgrounds.

You should also be well organised with the ability to cope with competing demands, be an effective team player, and be able to demonstrate Cyrenians values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.
