Inspired by Thrive Together Birmingham’s #FeedBirmingham campaign and in order to support Yardley’s foodbanks over the next 10 months, Arts In The Yard are running our own #FeedYardley initiative. If you are able to, we are asking residents to donate non-perishable food items that AITY will then redistribute to local foodbanks.

Food item donations can be dropped off directly to South Yardley Library:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 9.30am – 12noon and 2pm – 4.30pm

AITY may be able to collect your donation from your household.

You can always donate direct to local Foodbanks. You might even want to arrange a street collection or a joint collection with friends and family. Please get in touch if you are able to support #FeedYardley

You can also donate money via PayPal:
