We have continued to operate our food bank throughout the pandemic lockdown, albeit in a different way to ensure safety of service users and volunteers. Food4u currently operates only on a Tuesday but we have seen a significant increase in demand. Supporters who have donated food in the past but have been unable to continue to do so have been giving money instead which allows us to buy food and toiletries to supplement donated items. All donations are welcome.
Food4U opens on a Tuesday each week between 11am and 1pm. These sessions are attended by people in need of food from the Sutton Coldfield area and are usually referred to us by organisations like the Job Centre, Social Services, Homestart, etc.
The needs of people vary depending upon their situation. We, hopefully, also provide some advice, encouragement and support in addition to the food.
Our team are all volunteers – we have no paid staff.
If you would like to know more about the work of Food4U, volunteer to help, or donate food or money please get in touch or come in and see us.
