On Friday the 4th October Yardley Wood Baptist Church will be opening "Yardley Wood Pantry", a community food store run by volunteers for the benefit of local people.
It operates as a membership scheme and aims to help people make their money go further by:
- reducing food shopping bills (members can save over £500 each year)
- providing advice and support
- developing skills
Membership of Yardley Wood Pantry is for local individuals and families that find it hard to make ends meet each week.
For a membership fee of £3.50 a week, members can choose ten items from the ‘Pantry shop’, which would have a retail value of around £20. The Pantry shop stocks tinned and packet foods, refrigerated and frozen foods, fresh fruit and vegetables and many usual store favourites. It also stocks some household products such as toiletries and cleaning products.
Yardley Wood Pantry will be open at Yardley Wood Baptist Church for its first session on Friday 4th October from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
