We're now open...
For a small weekly subscription of a £4.50, members at the Open Heaven Pantry will be able to purchase a weekly food shop including fresh fruit and vegetables and family favourites to stock up the cupboard and fridge.
Open Heaven Church has been working in the local community for more than 25 years and has recently opened a second building on Price Road in Wednesbury. We have seen an increasing demand for our food bank service during Covid and have also been shopping for those who are isolating and vulnerable. During lockdown we provided weekly lunches for over 200 people in Wednesbury.
We are excited to be able to expand our services to include a Your Local Pantry Pantry and feel it would be a great way of supporting those who are struggling to afford a weekly shop, due to hardship or Covid.
You can find the pantry at:
Price Road Gospel Hall
