Black Country Foodbank helps vulnerable individuals and families in crisis through the provision of 3 days emergency food supplies while a longer-term solution is developed. The services we provide have an enormous impact on the people who use them, giving them an important breathing space at a time of great need.

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. If you have never been to the Lifecentral Church outlet head for the main office reception where you will find someone who can give you directions to where you need to go.

How can I benefit?

Vouchers will be issued by organisations such as social services, healthcare services, the Probation Service etc. 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
