Poets Pantry Helps to Feed the Podsmead Community

Poets Pantry is on the ground floor of Halford House

Podsmead Big Local have launched a scheme which offers a food club to members of the Podsmead community. ‘Poets Pantry’ is a new community facility on the ground floor of Halford House which is being used as a food distribution hub.

Local residents can join the food distribution club for just £3 and it then costs £1 a week to access food bags. The bags offer a range of items sourced by Fareshare which will be worth around £10 – £15 per week. To join the club all you need to do is visit between 9am and 3pm, call Les on 07545966361 or email les.jevins@podsmeadbiglocal.org.uk

Once you have joined you will be given a cool bag that you can take along each week to collect food between 9am and 3pm on Thursdays.
