Welcome to our People’s Pantry

The rising problem of food poverty

How would you feel if you didn’t have the money to provide a basic meal for your family? Imagine the heart-breaking horror of a hungry child and an empty fridge.

For many of us this is unimaginable. But for a shocking number of families living in your area, this is often a stark reality.

We believe that no child should ever go hungry. And that all families in our community should have access to food when they find their fridge and their pockets are empty. That’s why we opened People’s Pantry.

Open every weekday between 11am and 1pm, People’s Pantry provides a three-day emergency supply of food, baby products and toiletries to local families who find themselves without the basic living essentials they desperately need. Families do not need to be referred in to us, just call us and we will help.

Determined to make access to food as easy as possible for local families, we are proud to provide a vital lifeline to emergency food parcels within local schools and community venues. If you are interested in either of these initiatives, please contact Phil.

Support our People’s Pantry

It’s thanks to the kindness of people like you that we’ve been able to provide over 2232 families across Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-Under-Lyme with the emergency food parcels they so desperately need.

But this emergency service can’t continue without your help. Please help us to keep our shelves stocked and local families in crisis fed.
Please donate the following:

 Sanitary goods – including toothpaste and brushes, shower gels, feminine hygiene products, nappies and baby care products.

✓  Dried, tinned and boxed long life products.

  No fresh foods.

✘  No open, broken, or out of date items.
