Everton in the Community to launch food pantry

Everton in the Community (EitC) is launching their Blue Base Community Pantry on Thursday 26th May 2022 in partnership with Fans Supporting Foodbanks and St Andrew’s Community Network.

The pantry will run every Thursday (except 2nd of June due to bank holiday) from 10am – 12noon at The Blue Base, Salop Street, Liverpool, L4 4BZ. Free car parking is available on site.

The pantry is not means tested, but members must either:

  • Live within the Blue Base boundary map, which can be located on the downloadable flyer below.
  • Have a child that attends a school within the Blue Base boundary map (but may live outside of the boundary), or
  • Be an existing EitC programme participant.

Members will pay £3.50 per visit and in return will receive approximately £20 worth of goods including hygiene products, fresh fruit and veg, meat, dairy, frozen and ambient products.

Throughout the year EitC will also have free, wrap around services available such as an onsite GP, a benefit, debt, and welfare specialist, housing officers, and various physical and wellbeing activities.

Free tea, coffee, and toast will be available for all members to enjoy each week.

To sign up, families will need to either email: [email protected], phone: 0151 319 4018, or attend the pantry in person.

Registration is free, but EitC are limited to 150 members and advise people to sign up early to avoid disappointment.
