Bulk Food Collection
Bulk food collection
We know your services in the last few months have been a lifeline for many, and in these uncertain times we are still keen to support the partners of #BrumTogether to continue their services to those communities in most need.
From 22nd December, food has begun arriving from Birmingham City Council so The Active Wellbeing Society is able to offer bulk food collections for organisations to collect from our distribution centre in Digbeth by appointment only.
Please complete the form below to ask for the food you need from us, we can monitor total demand this way and communicate this back to the council. A member of the team will be in touch to arrange collection dates and times. Any questions about bulk collections please email: [email protected]
With plans being discussed about further lockdowns, and need expected to rise, we’re having active conversations about a larger or second space to be able to get in the volume of food. We will update you on this as soon as we can.
There are also many resources available across the city we have collated for food /other support or that you can direct people to the TAWS phone lines where our team can help signpost to advice and support for those in need.
Food Justice Network
For anyone interested in addressing the systemic issues around food poverty in the city, we are facilitating a new Food Justice Network. This includes working groups around Food Barriers, Food Opportunities, Growing, Covid19 Response, Community Cafes & Cooked Food, Street Feeding. Our next Zoom meeting for all work groups is on Friday 8th January- we’d love to see you there!
If you would like to join the main Food Justice Network group and any of the working groups, please email: [email protected]
