Keepmoat recently supported Toms Pantry, in Wigan, with a generous donation of £1000 to enable them to continue to support residents in need.
Tom’s Pantry is a food outlet, located in St James Centre, Home of St James with St Thomas Church in Wigan. They work with The Real Junk Food Project to intercept perfectly edible food, on its way to landfill, and make this available to their local community. As well as being helpful in budgeting they aim to care for our world and try to educate people that they are helping to save the planet, as well as bringing them good quality food at reasonable prices.
The pantry also offers a café where Hot & cold food is available where residents eat what they need and pay what they can afford.
Volunteers are working tirelessly to support people in their communities, as the sharp rise in the cost of energy, food and other essentials continues to soar. The need for emergency food parcels and support continues to increase so it is important we all do our bit to support these organisations.
Keepmoat’s Commercial Director, Chris Fairhurst, popped into the Pantry to deliver the cheque and meet some of the volunteers and hear more about the work they do.
