How Breaking Boundaries host Edgbaston Foundation has helped to #FeedBirmingham
Breaking Boundaries is a three-year programme (2018 –2021) funded by Spirit of 2012, supported by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and The Institute of Community Cohesion (Icoco).
Birmingham's Breaking Boundaries host, Edgbaston Foundation partnered with Thrive Together, Near Neighbours and West Midlands Police to help #FeedBirmingham during the pandemic.
The #FeedBirmingham food-drive saw communities from across the city come together to donate non-perishable food items and other essentials for members of the community in more vulnerable positions.
'Food champions' collected donations from their local neighbours and networks for #FeedBirmingham to distribute amongst emergency food distributors and community groups, ensuring it reached those most in need across the city.
ECB's 'Together through this Test' initiative encouraged local clubs to partake in the national 'Tea-A-Thon' on July 17th and become food collection points to support #FeedBirmingham.
Dorridge and Knowle CC, Berkswell CC, and Dorridge CC; plus WarksCCCWomen's Eve Jones, Gwenen Davies and Ria Fackrell kindly supported #FeedBirmingham through their terrific Tea-A-Thon efforts.
Thanks to the power of community #FeedBirmingham distributed 16 tonnes of donations worth over £50k across 12 weeks.
The initiative provided an avenue for neighbours to stay connected during lockdown and an opportunity for individuals to invest their newfound free time into supporting their community.
Additionally, over 35 volunteers from partner organisations worked closely across 12 weeks forging new friendship and developing a sense of pride in the city through their great work.
