Emmeline's Pantry are a food bank and food pantry providing fresh, long life and halal food as well as toiletries, baby items and sanitary products to women and their families in Manchester. We support women from all walks of life, women who have been effected by domestic abuse, mental health, disability, rape and homelessness. We believe in choice and never pre-bag. 

Since we started nearly five years ago, Emmeline's has grown from a cupboard in an office hallway to an entire basement at The Pankhurst Centre. However, we now need to move on and desperately need to raise money to ensure all DIY, deposits, health and safety checks and moving costs are covered. 

Moving means we can support more women in Manchester effected by poverty and low income. We can open for more days and we can invite more volunteers to join our team. 

There are so many women and children in Manchester unable to make ends meet for reasons including benefit cuts, sudden job loose, sudden carer duties and illness. So many women have to chose between heating and children's nappies and this is a choice no woman should ever have to make. 

Please support us in our move to a more suitable premise and help Emmeline's Pantry grow and reach more vulnerable women in Manchester.
