Foodbank Drop Off
Erdington Foodbank is experiencing heightening demand; together with increasing pressure to deliver to people who are in isolation; and major problems with obtaining food donations. We would be so massively grateful for help from the people of Sutton Coldfield. Any non-perishable foodstuffs are appreciated, but our current priorities are:- UHT milk, Sugar, Tinned custard, Pasta sauce, Coffee, Fruit, Packet rice and Rice pudding. We will soon need to replenish stocks of Meat, Vegetables, Fish, Cereals, Vegetarian meals and Tomatoes”. Non-food items such as feminine hygiene, toilet rolls, deodorants and soap are always needed.
Mondays and Fridays commencing Friday 3rd April, 10am – 2pm. Donors can park in the short term spaces by the Cenotaph in King Edwards Square. Staff are engaging in strict social distancing to reassure donors. The Town Hall will not be keeping food on the premises and it is a drop off point only, not a food bank collection service.
The venue, with its lovely views over the grounds, and the magnificent Sutton Park in the distance, plays host to a whole variety of occasions, from popular music to classical and opera, from theatre to children's shows, from major conferences to antique fairs and from banquets to weddings.
