Smethwick Pantry is a community group for people living in Smethwick.
For just a few pound a week, members can have access to affordable food. Have any questions about this pantry? Contact email@example.com
The pantry will be opened at: Smethwick Library, High St, Smethwick, B66 3AP.
This pantry will be opened by Smethwick Church Action Network which is a joint response from Smethwick’s churches to tackle poverty, increase aspiration, provide opportunities and support the most vulnerable.
They formed in 2014 to jointly set up a food bank. Since then, theyhave developed a wide range of food action initiatives, including an allotment, a community café, cooking and shopping lessons.
They are setting up this Pantry to offer food bank users choice and dignity – we see it as a great move-on option from food bank. Other local residents will also be able to become members so that we can develop an integrated, welcoming, community space.
