That this House congratulates The Scottish Pantry Network on their award of a £10,000 National Lottery Community Fund; understands that this funding will be used to purchase an electric refrigerated vehicle to help supply their local network of pantries with a greater choice and improved accessibility to fresh and frozen goods; recognises that these most in need will benefit most from this service and that it will provide a direct response to the cost-of-living crisis locally; commends the pantry network on its work to divert food away from landfill and promote a sustainable, dignified approach to food insecurity that aids physical as well as mental health; and wishes The Scottish Pantry Network every success with the vital work it is doing in mitigating the impact of poverty.
