With 1 in 5 of the UK population living below the poverty line, we as an organisation see the effects it has on the customers we support.

Trident Reach’s foodbank helps vulnerable individuals and families in crisis through the provision of emergency food supplies whilst a longer-term solution is developed. The service we provide has an enormous impact on the customers who use the foodbank, offering the customer important breathing space at a time of great need.

We felt that there was a need to set up a small foodbank resource for our customers who are experiencing real hardship. The Black Country Foodbank has joined in partnership with Trident Reach to be part of a project that makes a real difference to the lives of those in crisis and provide our charity with much needed supplies.

With the ramification of welfare reform and implementation of Universal Credit being felt nationally, we are now helping both individuals and families of up to 8 people requiring emergency food supplies. This naturally takes a toll on our supplies and we are constantly fundraising for donations of either food/drink or money to refresh our supplies.

You can help us by donating either financially or in food supplies. To speak to us about our foodbank and on how you can help, please contact Marie Calder on 0121 226 5800 or
