February community pantry update

We seem to have arrived at the last week of February already, so it seems a good time to update you on pantry matters.

This month we have seen an increase in people using the pantry as the drop in Universal Credit, rising energy prices and other costs it hitting home for people.

Thanks so much to our Patreon supporters, a total of 57 of you so well on the way to our first goal of 75 regular supporters – in addition to our patrons on Paypal and by BACS.

We’ve been able to distribute a lot of toiletries, soups, hot drinks and clothing too – all thanks to our community paying forward these items and supporting this project.

Sadly, we foresee the pantry continuing to be necessary for some time to come, although we hope to be part of creating a world where everyone has access to nutritious food. If you are in a position to help, please do consider donating regularly or as a one-off, as we rely on your support to cover the cost of doing this.

Ways to support the community pantry:

Join our Patreon community – make a monthly regular donation and get access to behind the scenes posts, live broadcasts and a library of recorded events!

Pay forward a meal, hot drink, groceries or toiletries 

Make a one-off donation of any amount

Spread the word about our pantry so people know about it!
