We received a visit from Bishop Auckland Police to The Well. They wanted to talk about ways that we could support young people who are having a hard time in our village of West Auckland and the surrounding area with food provision. We contacted local schools to discuss this further.
We had heard of Janies Pantry which had recently opened in West Auckland. We approached them to see if they could produce a number of packed lunches for a budget as The Well community cafe was temporarily closed. What we heard next was amazing, "yes we will, but we won't charge you." We were blown away. This morning we collected the lunches from Janies Pantry.
Janies Pantry supporting young people in West Auckland
During lunchtime today we distributed them from The Well to help 27 young people and their families and gave some of the lunches to a youth provision in Bishop Auckland.
Thank you Janies Pantry.
