Inspired by Thrive Together Birmingham’s #FeedBirmingham campaign and in order to support Yardley’s foodbanks, Arts In The Yard ran our own #FeedYardley initiative during the Covid pandemic. We asked local residents to donate non-perishable food items that AITY then redistributed to local foodbanks.

With donations drop offs now finished, AITY are still 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:
