At the West Cheltenham Community Pantry we offer food, household goods and support to help families or individuals in need. This could be anyone who has suddenly found themselves facing poverty and hunger due to loss of salary, change in benefits, unexpected large bills, illness or family breakdown. Whatever the crisis we will be there for them.
