Catshill Baptist Church

Foodbank

Who are we

We are an independent foodbank operating as part of the outreach of the church. We believe that every person matters to God and that He loves and cares about each one of us.

Catshill Baptist Foodbank was formally known as Catshill and Marlbrook Foodbank. The change of name is to ensure that we are known to be serving Catshill and surrounding areas and not exclusively Catshill and Marlbrook.

How it works

We operate the foodbank as an expression of our Christian faith and are pleased to work with those of other faiths or none from our local community and will show no discrimination to those receiving our service. 

Our food is donated by local people and organisations wanting to give a helping hand in times of need. We receive the food in good faith and only distribute if ‘in date’ and in suitable condition. It is always given as a gift and is not for resale.

All food distribution is done through the issue of foodbank vouchers and we work with a number of partner agencies who can issue vouchers, on our behalf, to their clients who are in need due to crisis or hardship. The voucher will be exchanged for a three day supply of nutritionally balanced food. We will also endeavour to signpost to other relevant services as and when we can.
