Your Local Pantry - Brasshouse opened in December 2020 to help relieve food poverty in the local community.
The impact of the 2020 Coronavirus, further highlighted the impact that food poverty was having on local people. As a result, we delivered food parcels, cooked meals and provided essential household and personal items for local people.
Through local consultation, we knew there was a need for a ongoing and reliable service, that provided dignity and choice for people and was affordable to access.
For a small weekly subscription of £4, members of this pantry will be able to have access to food including fresh fruit and vegetables and store cupboard favourites that will often value £15-20 or more! Membership is open to the community and local families are strongly encouraged to join.
This community food programme will run alongside our many community activities, such as welfare rights and money advice, health and well being activities, employment support and creative programmes.
The Pantry will operate from Brasshouse Community Centre in Smethwick. The centre is managed by North Smethwick Development Trust (registered charity).
You can find the pantry at:
Brasshouse Lane Community Centre
