The Pantry Project

Can you help us address the need for food in the City? – The Pantry Project is a project of The Churches Trust.   It was established as a crisis response to meet the needs of people (individuals and families) who for one reason or another find themselves in a situation of extreme hardship.  The Churches Trust collect food donations and work with community hubs to distribute food parcels to those in need.  People from all walks of life have accessed our project. Last year we provided food to over 2000 people (children and adults).

People can be referred to the project by contacting their local community groups, or Waterside Neighbourhood Partnership, or Greater Shantallow Area Partnership (Ethos project).  Referrals have also been made via churches and onto The Churches Trust or indeed directly to The Churches Trust. 

We would appreciate if you could bring non-perishable foods to the churches/parish office weekend 3rd/4th February.  Flyers about the project are available at the back of the church. The Churches Trust will arrange to pick-up the food from the church.  If you would like to know more about the Pantry Project, please call The Churches Trust on 71311322.
