...all those in need of food
Food pantries exist to provide long term weekly access to low cost, high quality food.
We support people who are in in food crisis, some of whom may have previously accessed foodbanks, and also aim to prevent people from reaching crisis point. There are now a number in Bath, run by a variety of organisations, and this is an area of rapidly growing need. We have been open since September 2020 and have experienced a significant growth in people needing us. All Saints Church run the Welcome Café and Food Club. Mercy in Action run the Pantry in Twerton.
Please pray for...
for those whose circumstances have been changed dramatically by Covid-19
all of the people currently experiencing food insecurity
the people already accessing long term food support
people who are struggling financially but haven't yet heard about food pantries
all pantry volunteers in B&NES
for systemic change to challenge the acceptance of such high levels of inequality in our country, and to address the root causes.
