Keep up-to-date with what we've been up to across the Black Country


9th September 2020

Harvest is one of the most important times of the year for Black Country Foodbank as we restock our shelves after the demands of the summer holidays. This year, more than ever, we’re thankful that many schools, churches community groups and businesses donate vital food, toiletries and finances to help support food banks as we navigate a very different and difficult landscape. The past few months have been incredibly challenging for families but the next few months could get even worse with increased unemployment and the financial pressures that Christmas and the winter months bring. Please support us if you can.


Below are some free resources to help you organise a food collection that you may wish to download.
