There are hundreds of people in Birmingham who aren’t as lucky as us to have a home to go to tonight. Instead, they will be in hostels, squatting or on the streets. We need to change this.
Birmingham’s homeless community is the second largest in the UK, with 1,152 registered cases. Imagine those who aren’t even on the radar! Stats are one thing but walk the streets and you’ll see this isn’t even half of it.
10 million tonnes of food is thrown away every year in the UK by cafés, bars, restaurants and businesses. With people going hungry and food being thrown away, the solution really is simple.
How Can Others Help?
It’s easy… we are not just looking for food retailers; anyone can get involved.
Whether it’s helping to collect food from around the city or volunteering with our team on the street, we are always looking for help. There’s no minimum commitment – whether it’s one day a week or a couple of hours a month, any time you can give will make a big difference.
We are always looking for more partners to work with us and help tackle homelessness. So, if you have a team (big or small) help us out by donating food, drink, clothing and essential supplies. Giving up your time is also a massive help so we’d love to hear your ideas. Get in touch!
Let’s Feed Brum was set up to build on the work of Inspiration Support, a team of dedicated volunteers who provide essential supplies and friendship to those living on our streets. We’re bringing Birmingham together to help feed people in these unfortunate circumstances.
