Proud Supporters of the People’s Pantry
Did you know that 31% of children in Stoke-on-Trent live in low-income households?
33% of parents miss meals so they can afford to feed their children.
73% of families earn less than £15,000 and can’t afford to buy food in the school holidays.
The People’s Pantry was set up by the Alice Charity, working to combat these shocking statistics by supporting disadvantaged families across Stoke and Newcastle. Unlike other foodbanks, it doesn’t use a referral system and is open daily to any family in need, providing a three-day emergency supply of food, baby products and toiletries.
At amb, we truly support the work that the Alice Charity do and the difference they’re making to local families in need of support. We decided we wanted to do more for the charity in order to make it as easy as possible for others to donate food and other supplies.
We came up with the idea of designing sturdy, re-usable foodbank boxes and handing them out to local businesses with all necessary contact and donation details printed on the box. The Alice Charity then collect the items when the boxes are full.
