A food bank at Tabernacle was officially set up in September 2008 under the title of “Pharaoh’s Pantry”. It has worked alongside “Home Access” our housing charity, in order to provide support to people in need in our local community.
In 2013 Cytun (the churches together in Penarth) agreed to put their full support behind the initiative and adopt it as the Penarth churches food distribution project.
The food bank aims to provide support specifically to those who are struggling with their state benefits, those who are homeless or vulnerably homed and those who are finding it difficult to make ends meet.
We can offer food parcels to people in immediate need of food and we can also provide people with other household essentials. As a church we can also offer further support via Home Access as well as through prayer, being a listening ear and connecting people with various kinds of assistance and counseling. If you are in need of help please do not hesitate to contact us.
For more details contact: Claire Grafton or contact the church centre.
We would like to thank all those who give so generously to the work of Pharaoh’s Pantry.
