At Emmeline’s Pantry we are passionate about people making their own choices and we never discriminate against need.
Emmeline’s Pantry is led by a dedicated group of women and supporters who started out in a hallway, providing clothes to women. We are constantly expanding and nearly ten years on our foodbank now provides food, clothes, toiletries and baby items to women in need.
Our foodbank service:
We differ from other food banks in three ways:
1. We are a women only food bank.
2. We offer fresh food to ensure healthy eating.
3. We give service users a choice of food, we never pre-bag.
All our stock is donated or purchased with donations. All surplus donations are recycled or used for income generation. All the money and donations we receive go directly towards our service to ensure women and their families receive the best possible support.
We have a service aimed at helping women and families that may be struggling to feed or clothe everyone with the rising costs of living and effects of benefit cuts. This is open to all women across Manchester who, for a donation, can access the service either weekly or monthly depending on need. This is accessed by referral only.
