Foodbank reaches out to serve those in need by providing a simple bag of food or toiletries. Bags are given to needy families and individuals by our partner organisations; Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid, Freshwinds, Gateway Family Services, South and City College, Handsworth and Ladywood Children’s Centres.
Filling a Foodbank bag is a simple way to show God’s love, care and concern. A Family Support Worker who recently gave Foodbank bags to her client said “I am working with an 8 year old girl and her single mother who has injured her lower arm and hand. The injury required surgery which meant the mother was signed off work. This led to some financial difficulties and the mother requested some support. We have been able to provide four Foodbank bags over the last three weeks and she has been overwhelmed by the generosity and support that Foodbank offers.” Foodbank is making a real difference to people in need across our city.
