We will be open every Wednesday from 12-2pm for Pantry Members only. We will be charging the usual £4 membership fee.
As we are the only people using the church we are able to reopen as a shop enabling members once again to choose their own food. We have measures in place to ensure the safety of all our customers, staff and volunteers.

This pantry is available on Monday and Thursdays, 10AM-12 Noon.
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.
