5Let’s Feed Brum

The homeless community of Birmingham is now the second largest in the UK and with 10 million tonnes of food being thrown away every year in the UK, Let’s Feed Brum are bringing Birmingham’s cafés, bars and restaurants together to help feed people in unfortunate circumstances while increasing the number of volunteers out on the streets by bringing the community together.

Want to help? Let’s Feed Brum are looking for regular or one-off donations of hot or cold food that can be delivered to a volunteer or direct to their soup kitchen at Old Square on Corporation Street. Additionally, volunteers are needed every Monday-Saturday evening and Wednesday and Thursday morning.
