It is the intention of the West Bromwich Food Bank to continue supporting the residents of Sandwell through this crisis. With this in mind, can you please note our new opening hours with immediate effect. will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12.00 – 2.00.
Hopefully, now that the lock down has ended things should slowly get back to normal with the various agencies reopening and able to see clients face to face. we do ask that anyone needing a food parcel should obtain a voucher before visiting our c entre. If you use a job centre you can ask their for a voucher. Please note that the JC+ apply their own rules for any voucher requests. Sandwell Council also run a scheme called local welfare provision. Please visit your local council office for more information or to request a voucher. You can apply online from the council’s website http://www.sandwell.gov.uk Click on the benefits section and follow it through.
There is a useful website call Route2wellbeing which lists the many support agencies operating throughout Sandwell. Please visit https://route2wellbeing.info for more information.
When visiting the food bank centre we must stress that you should observe any social distancing rules and any guidance which may be issued by our Manager, which are there for your protection as well as ours! Anyone not observing the rules may not be served.
Obviously, due to the possibility of our team having to isolate our opening hours can change, please watch this space for further information as it happens. Otherwise you can ring us on 0121 580 0068 or contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org
