About Elena

Elena studied Politics & Media Communications at Newcastle University, during which time she did several internships. That led her to a successful career in global communications. However, during recent lockdowns, Elena spotted an opportunity and has now started her own business, Neighbourhood Pantry. As many of us relied on (and appreciated) shopping local during the pandemic, she capitalised on that trend, bringing together premium local food and drinks stores for convenient shopping and delivery via one website.
