More details from petition creator

For seven years MSP has worked in the local community to address food poverty and help those most at need. We have supported local groups, such as: refugees, women´s refuges, youth centres and school projects. Furthermore, we have played a vital role in the community throughout the C19 pandemic, delivering up to 160 food parcels per week. We are all unpaid volunteers from the area who give up our free time as we care about our local community. We were born and raised in the area, and we are passionate about serving our community. We are unfunded and rely on donations, it is vital for our future that we are provided with a suitable working base.

Our project is an important community asset and has provided help and support to local people when they have most needed it. Even though there are two other food banks in the area, these require vouchers and can be difficult to access for some people. With Mary Smith´s Pantry, no voucher is required and we can help those that fall between the cracks. We call on Westminster council to guarantee us a a permanent home to work from in our local community.
