Based in Manchester – the home of its namesake, Emmeline Pankhurst – Emmeline’s Pantry is a food bank for women in need in the Manchester region (registered charity no 1169796).
Emmeline’s Pantry differs from other food banks in 3 ways:
- It is a women-only food bank
- It offers fresh food, to ensure healthy eating
- Service users choose their own food, rather than picking up pre-bagged parcels
Emmeline’s Pantry is passionate about people making their own choices, and never discriminates against need. All stock is donated or purchased with donations. Surplus donations are recycled or used for income generation. All money and donations received go towards the charity’s service, to ensure that women and their families receive the best possible support.
