Food Banks

Food banks are not-for-profit organisations that give food to people who are struggling to afford enough to eat. Food with a long shelf life (tinned food, powered milk, pasta etc), is collected through donations, then sorted and stored.

The food is given to people who have recieved a voucher, usually from a support worker, housing officer or Probation Officer. This voucher can be taken to a local foodbank and exchanged for an emergency food parcel.

Below is a list of foobank services in the West Midlands Region: Sparkhill Foodbank is one of the largest Foodbanks in the UK, operating six satellites from its central warehouse hub: Sparkhill, Tyseley, Balsall Heath, Stechford and Hall Green, as well as Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. We have a Clothes Bank (currently a very limited operation due to Covid protocols) and a Money Advice Service.
