Hangar Community Hub Food Pantry is now a year old and has supported hundreds of families through the year.  We’re delighted to have met so many wonderful people during our first year.

Thanks to the support of Fareshare Cymru we’ve been able to set our Pantry up independently of any franchise, to minimise our costs.  As many of you will know, Hangar is an Independent organisation, we’re not funded or paid for the work we do, we don’t have Council premises and have to support ourselves.

At our year end, we had 850 registered Pantry members on our system.  That is people who we’ve actually helped, at least 20% of that are regularly active and we see them at least once a week.

Our Pantry isn’t means-tested and doesn’t require any special status.  Anyone can access it.

To celebrate the 1st Birthday of the Pantry, we ran 2 enhanced pantries, where we gave all members delicious ice-cream tubs from Ben & Jerries, Magnum or Little Moons, and thanks to the Lidl Hygiene Poverty Fund, we also purchased hygiene products which were:

  • Hand soap
  • Shower Gel
  • Washing Up Liquid

The volunteers decorated the area with bunting and we had a pop up bric-a-brac shop, all totally free!  Volunteer Alison who ran this, also sold a few special things she had donated and gave the fund to the Pantry which was much appreciated.

This really made for a special Pantry day.
