The Communitea café has shifted its focus from providing affordable, healthy meals to all to being the operation centre for the distribution of bags containing essential food and non-food items to anyone in need. The team worked with local supermarkets to purchase items in bulk and would especially like to say a big thank you to Tesco at New Oscott who jumped on board and helped us out. Bags were packed, cars filled and a team of five have been distributing bags across Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham every day, reaching those who would otherwise have struggled to get by.

The essential bags delivered to residents of Sutton Coldfield have been funded by Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council’s Community Grant Programme
