We are pleased to announce the start of our new Islamic Food Bank service from the blessed month of Ramadhan.
The purpose of the Food Bank is to provide help and support for those that are finding it genuinely difficult to fulfil even their basic needs for food and nutrition, in Birmingham.
We would rather not handle any financial contributions, and prefer that you donate the following food items regularly so that we can give the food parcels to the families who most deserve this help. The kinds of foods we request are:
Milk (UHT or powdered, No fresh Milk)
Rice/Pasta Baked Beans
Sugar/flour Fruit juice cartons
Pasta sauces Tinned tomatoes
Tinned Rice pudding Tea bags / Coffee
Instant mash potato Tinned halal meat
Tinned fish Jam/Cereals
Biscuits Instant noodles etc
Please bring your contributions in plastic bags on Fridays and hand it in at the Masjid to our volunteers.
(We request more volunteers to come forward).
We would also need affiliating agencies that can assist in referring and vetting genuine needy individuals and families to the Food Bank.
Distribution days and times to be confirmed later.
