Foodbanks Helping Families Over Christmas
Food banks are working across the West Midlands in the run up to Christmas to ensure families in the area can have a decent meal over the festive period.
They rely heavily on people donating products and money which is then spent on food and we've heard the numbers of people using this service is on the rise.
Food banks are providing families with three days worth of food over Christmas and this includes chocolate, biscuits and mince pies, as well as gifts for children.
