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.

There are a variety of ways you can help the city’s homeless. From volunteering with our team on the street to donating unwanted clothes and sleeping bags – there’s always something you can do to help.
Let’s Feed Brum builds on the work of Inspiration Support, a team of dedicated volunteers who have provided essential supplies and friendship to those living on our streets for the past six years. Being out on the streets helps us start conversations and signpost existing services already helping tackle the city’s homelessness issue.
