The Churches Together in Ross and District Community Larder is a project based in the basement of St Mary’s Hall. It seeks to help individuals and families who are facing hardship. It is supported by members of the local and district churches, Ross Town Council, the Gazette, the Lions Club and local people. Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and the Community Garden support us  with  items of food or with generous donations,  and other local firms are beginning to donate too. We hold Saturday food collections from time to time at Morrison’s.


The  Community Larder is open between 9.00 and 11.00 am each Tuesday, staffed by volunteers from all the churches in Ross and the surrounding villages. It works on a voucher scheme. The vouchers are available from agencies throughout the town such as Age UK, CAB, DASH, Festival Housing, Job Centre Plus, British Legion, SSAFA and many more.  The  local schools, health visitors and clergy also have vouchers. There is no limit to the number of times someone can visit the Larder but people can only come once a week.


Anyone wishing to donate food (non perishable goods) can bring it to the Larder on a Tuesday morning when the Larder is open, between 9.00 – 11.00.  For large donations, (ie: after Harvest Festival etc) please telephone the Larder on 07748 319940 to arrange a convenient time.

Financial gifts may be taken to the Church Office – any cheque being made payable to Ross Community Larder.

For any further information please contact 07748 319940 or email us
