Thrive Together Birmingham has so far during the pandemic distributed over 1,800 bags of food and counting.

Foodbanks and other food distribution organisations have seen a doubling in people accessing their services during the COVID19 pandemic and more food is needed. Every week food providers all over Birmingham are contacted by Thrive Together Birmingham to see where there is the greatest need and the food is delivered to them by volunteers.

Edgbaston Stadium has donated its Exhibition Hall to be used as a central food storage and distribution centre, which all collections are delivered to before being repackaged and sent on to local food banks and community groups.


Approximately £19,000 worth of food (retail value) has been donated to #feedbirmingham over recent weeks.

That’s approx. 5.25 tonnes of food

And over 22,000 items

Filling 1,800 bags of shopping
