This year it may not be so easy for you to give food to your usual Harvest Festival or collection, so Birmingham City Mission has set up a special Harvest Appeal web page. Any donations given on this page will be spent on the BCM food bank, supporting people who are struggling to make ends meet.
Tins and packets from harvest collections are also very welcome as always. We really appreciate everything that comes in to keep shelves stocked, meals served and food parcels packed. At the moment we are doing well for pasta, beans and soup, but are almost completely out of:
• tinned meat
• tinned fruit
• packets of biscuits
• small packs of tea, coffee and sugar
• shampoo, shower gel and deodorant

Please bring food donations to the Resource Centre at The Clock Tower, 2 Langdon Street, B9 4BP on Mondays to Thursdays, 10am – 3pm.
Call 0121 766 6603 – ext 1 if you need us to pick up large collections, or extension 2 if you would like to volunteer to help sort and date donations.
BCM’s food bank at Harvest is a short movie produced by the BCM Children’s Team for primary schools. It describes what happens to the tins and packets of food that are donated and how they help others.
