In celebration of LoveBrum’s first ‘Impact Week’, we’re sharing the stories of the people who’ve benefited from LoveBrum’s support, demonstrating the impact LoveBrum has delivered in Birmingham.

Project aim

Kingstanding Food Community believes no one should go hungry! They have allotments and a kitchen garden to grow food and feed their local community.

The organisation provides a variety of workshops and works closely with families and local schools to help children understand where their food comes from. In addition , they help people who are currently out of work gain commercial cafe experience and get back into employment.

Where are they now?

Kingstanding Food Community recently opened their brand new community cafe! Due to the growing demand, the cookery workshop was in desperate need of an upgrade. The funding from LoveBrum bought new plumbing and taps for all of their sinks, a hot water heater, a commercial oven and fridge, a new chest freezer, new plates and a playpen for the cafe’s youngest visitors.

Impact

Since receiving the funding from LoveBrum, Kingstanding Food Community has been able to give 40 volunteers a set of brand new skills and their community cafe has fed just under 2,000 locals.

Where it all began…
