Packing Food for TAWS

Make the #BrumTogether emergency food distributions happen

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym runners at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. To attend this session you must sign up in advance. Please do not attend the session if you have not signed up in advance

Alongside government social distancing and hygiene rules, you must:

  • Bring your own gloves suitable for the task
  • Not share tools at the task or clean tools between each use

Description

The Active Wellbeing Society are resuming distribution of food parcels around the city as part of their #BrumTogether movement.

They are doing daily food parcels from their distribution centre at 10 Bromley Street, Digbeth, B9 4AN on:

Mondays 8.30am-4.00pm Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Thursdays 8.30am-7.00pm Fridays 8.30am-2.00pm

The distribution centre is open for these hours but please spare the time you have, whether that's an hour, two or more. It will really help to get these food parcels created. If you want to share the time you are planning to volunteer, leave a comment below in the discussion for other GoodGym members to join up with you, or put a message into the Whatsapp group.
