What is a Foodbank?

A foodbank gives three days of nutritionally balanced food and support for people who are in crisis and facing difficult choices about meeting financial obligations or going hungry. The foodbank network is now helping communities across the West Midlands to meet the needs of their neighbours by setting up a foodbank in their own locality.

The very first foodbank began in Salisbury, and with 10 years of expertise, the charity now has 70 foodbanks feeding people in need all over the UK.

In setting up a foodbank we will:
Work with local churches to mobilise volunteers and resources
Link with statutory agencies for client referrals
Partner with local schools, businesses and supermarkets for food donations
Pray with and for people in need in your community
