ABOUT US

We have teamed up with great volunteers and donors locally, donations of non perishable in date foods arrive at our Depot in Smethwick or Southall.

One of our volunteers will then make sure that all records are kept of the food we have been donated, they will then check expiry dates for foods to make sure they are good to be distributed. Then the food is made up into emergency food packs, our team of dedicated volunteer drivers then deliver this food to people in a crisi situation. 

Each week we receive lots of phones calls at the depot for people in need of food, some maybe for short periods of time and some for longer, the most common reasons are below: 

 

Sanctions at the job centre


Low income 


Benefit changes


Debt


Homeless 


Domestic violence


New member of the family


Breavement 


Illness 


Lack of hours at work 


Disability 

New taxes 


Universal Credit


Other reasons 



Our Emergency parcels would normally consist of:

Cola
Lemonade
Rice
Pasta
Beans 
Chocolate
Rice Pudding 
Biscuits 
Sugar
Tea
Coffee 
Milk 
Soup 

We do all this with the assistance of volunteers, please keep up the great work.
