Coronavirus: Where To Get Help

The Real Junk Food Project Birmingham is busier than ever!!

Our volunteers are working hard 7 days a week to collect and redistribute food, and we’re working in partnership with The Active Wellbeing Society, Birmingham City Council and others to ensure it goes where it needs to.

If you are feeling lonely and need a friendly chat, or need some help to pick up urgent supplies during self-isolation then please don’t hesitate to contact by clicking on the button above and completing the form there, or by calling 0121 728 7030 during office hours.

You can use the form to request food, transport, information, a friendly chat or advice, advice on staying at home, or emergency non-food supplies. Or all of the above!

Please note this support is currently only available for Birmingham residents, but the link does list other sources of support in nearby areas.
