What is a "pantry" in a kitchen staff?

I just got a new job at a restaurant in the kitchen. Today i was put on the schedule under the Job of "pantry" and i have no idea what that is. Other jobs on the list were Grill, Saute, and Fry, all of which i know what they mean. But i have never heard of pantry so i wanted help in understanding what my job will be.

You will probably be given the task of keeping inventory of all the groceries in stock, and perhaps you will even be in charge of purchasing food to restock the pantry!
