Almost a half million pounds worth of grants is being made available by the city council to projects which are providing food to Birmingham residents. The Council recognises the vital work that food projects are doing in the city and want to support them as they respond to the cost of living crisis.

Cash grants of £4800 will be available for 100 organisations across the city, such as foodbanks, food clubs, food pantries, social supermarkets and community cafés. The organisations will receive £800 per month for six months to support them. The money will be primarily for buying food but can also be used for hygiene products, baby food and formula, and pet food where appropriate.
