black country foodbank

Food Bank is a way of showing Jesus’ love in action through a practical, community based project aimed at providing short term relief by giving 3 days supply of food to people in crisis in our local area. All food is supplied by members of the public – schools, churches, businesses and individuals.

When does it run?

At Lifecentral Church Halesowen we have a Black Country Foodbank outlet which is open every Tuesday and Friday from 1-3pm. Head for the main office reception area where you will find someone to help you.

How can I benefit?

Vouchers will be issued by organisations such as social services, healthcare services and the Food Bank. Contact the Church office for more details.

How can I get involved?

  • Donating food – Go to the Black Country Food Bank website for information on what to donate
  • Bring a bag of food to Lifecentral Halesowen. You can either bring it to one of the Sunday Services and give it to one of the ‘Hosting Team’ (the people wearing turquoise T shirts) when you arrive, or drop it into the Reception during the week.
  • Helping with the running of the Food Bank
