The Pantry exists to nourish the spirit of generosity and well being in the community.
South Invercargill is one of the oldest residential parts of town, Over the 1990’s - 2008 the area suffered some economic, political and social setbacks. South Invercargill Urban Rejuvenation Charitable Trust, known as South Alive was established in 2012. The trust is owned and run by the community and has achieved major change in how South Invercargill looks and feels.
In May 2017 South Alive opened the doors to The Pantry, a bulk grocery and speciality foods store with a community cafe that is designed to create revenue to fund South Alive and their community projects.
At the heart of The Pantry is sustainability, nourishment and our community.
