Word Origin for pantry
early 14c., from Anglo-French panetrie (Old French paneterie) "bread room," from Medieval Latin panataria "office or room of a servant who has charge of food" (literally "bread"), from Latin panis "bread" (see food). Sense in English has evolved so far that its roots in "bread" are no longer felt.
