Cash boost to allow Worcester community pantry to help more

Worcester Editorial 18th Apr, 2024   0

A WORCESTER community pantry can continue its invaluable work in the city after a much-needed cash boost.

Action for Children’s Tudor Way Family Hub in Dines Green has received the cash to fund food deliveries to its community pantry.

The Family Hub receives food from Fareshare, a UK-wide charity which fights hunger and food waste. Although the Fareshare food is free, the cost of deliveries from the Birmingham depot to the Family Hub needs to be covered.

The new funding, from Platform Housing Group’s Community Chest, will cover two deliveries a month for the next year.

Ileana Monagham, Community Health Connector at Action for Children said: “The Pantry has a big impact on our families; we can support anywhere between 20 and 30 families with fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy products, helping them to provide a real nutritional option at meal times.

“The food we receive goes to families with children who are in desperate need of food.




“Without our help, many families would struggle to feed their children; so many rely on the Pantry.”
