Bolton Road Community Pantry

Bolton Road Methodist and St. Stephen’s Churches are running a community pantry in partnership with Porch Boxes.

Bolton Road Community Pantry runs from Bolton Road Church building and provides groceries, toiletries and other necessities to local families in need. It is staffed by DBS checked volunteers from Bolton Road and St. Stephen’s churches.

Membership of the community pantry is by referral from local schools and welfare organisations. For a weekly subscription of £3 members are able to shop at the pantry once a week on Thursday morning, choosing what they would like within a range of options. The value of their shop is considerably more than £3. Alongside the pantry, drinks and biscuits are served in the church lounge. This gives people an opportunity to stay and chat and to receive additional support if they wish.

If you would like to volunteer with the pantry, or donate money or goods, please contact the stewards or
