The First Step

The first step would normally be to obtain a Foodbank voucher.

(please note, the B30 Foodbank is open to voucher holders only)

There are many local places where you can obtain a voucher.

Please ask:

  • Your social worker or support worker
  • Your child’s school or children’s centre
  • Your doctor, health centre or clinic
  • Your church
  • Your local community centre


 If you can’t afford food, you can call

Birmingham City Council Advisory Line 0121 216 3030 to request a referral

or call 0808 2082138 (freephone) to speak to a trained and independent Citizens  Advice agent (Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm). Please note this number is for people who do not have enough money for food – if you are a local organisation or charity that works with people who might need the food bank, please contact us directly.


Anyone referred and with a Foodbank voucher code can collect on Tuesday and Friday between 1.30 and 3.30pm.

You can get in touch with us directly. Call or email the B30 foodbank and we can talk through your situation and put you in touch with a relevant local agency.

If you have any further questions our FAQ’s page may help, or feel free to give us a call.
