So, how’s everyone doing?
We’re a few weeks into this now and The Real Junk Food Project Birmingham volunteers are busier than ever collecting and redistributing food in partnership with other organisations.
Between the 20th and 31st March we distributed food to 5822 people!
How can you help?
Firstly, direct anyone who needs assistance to https://theaws.co.uk/relief/
Get the word out there – tell families, friends , neighbours, work colleagues , charities , public services. You can use the form on theaws.co.uk/relief to request food, transport, information, a friendly chat or advice, advice on staying at home, or emergency non-food supplies. Or all of the above!
Can you donate carrier bags or even better recycled fabric #morsbags? If you can use a sewing machine to help make cloth bags – get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you know of anywhere that could donate sawdust to help with our composting? Our usual suppliers aren’t operating right now. Again, get in touch at email@example.com.
Are you well, not in self-isolation, and have a few hours free you could help pack bags at Ladywood? If so, please send your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to everyone working hard around Birmingham (and beyond!) doing our best to #FeedBelliesNotBins
