A Seat At The Table

This Christmas, your support could provide food and essential help to families in need.

Leed 4

Christmas should be a time of joy and togetherness, spent with loved ones. But many of the people we help are worried about affording to put food on their table this year and face spending Christmas alone.

That’s why this Christmas we are asking for your help.

We’re asking you to sponsor a seat at your table – by donating the cost of a Christmas dinner – so that we can support someone who needs a little extra help this year.

Through our national network of Pantry food hubs we support thousands of people each year with access to healthy and nutritious food alongside expert support to help them find a route out of poverty within 6 months.

"St Giles Trust gives you confidence. It’s like a stepping stone. It gives you a sense of self-worth, meeting new people and being around good people.”

-Carys, Pantry Volunteer

With your support we will be able to help people get through this Christmas:

The Pantry St Giles RGB (2)

The St Giles Pantry is a food hub with a difference.

We offer high quality, nutritious and healthy food to those struggling to feed themselves and their families - those held back by poverty, addiction and mental health issues, who are being disproportionately affected by the cost of living crisis.

Expert advice and personal face-to-face support is on hand from our trained Peer Advisors, who help address the underlying issues leading to poverty.  People using the Pantry pay a weekly subscription of £3.50 and in return are able to access an abundance of affordable, nutritious food and added support to help them move towards independence.
