Pastoral Support: The pantry

The St Giles Pantry has now been open for six weeks and we are at a stage to officially launch it, opening up to the wider Coventry community and services. We would like you to promote the pantry to parents of children on free school meals. 

We are a Social Pantry, supporting those who are struggling to feed themselves or their families. Paying £3.50 a week, the clients will get up to £30 worth of food, along with the support of a peer adviser who will help them to overcome any barriers that they may be facing. This could include healthy eating plans, benefit needs, isolation & community integration, confidence building, ETE, FBD etc. The aim is to support clients to progress, develop their skills and to move away from food poverty within a 6 month timeframe.

We are officially launching on Wednesday 9th June, please speak to Pastoral Support team for more information.
