Brum Bites Back

This winter the Food Justice Network (FJN) is launching a very special campaign, Brum Bites Back! We’re asking the people of Birmingham to bite back at food injustice in three simple ways – to host, give or share. Brum Bites Back is part of the FJN.

Brum Bites Back is necessary because food injustice in Birmingham is among the most acute in the UK. Data released earlier this year* shows around half the city’s citizens suffered some kind of food insecurity in 2021/2022. More than 70,000 children in Birmingham do not have enough to eat.

The Food Justice Network came together during the pandemic, facilitated by The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS) to unify and coordinate the city's many food projects. Today it continues to deliver vital support to some of the city’s most disadvantaged citizens with TAWS maintaining its role as facilitator and advocate.

All of the money raised from Brum Bites Back will go directly towards buying food, funding bulk purchases which can then be shared across the FJN organisations. Being able to buy in bulk will enable the FJN to save money. We’ll also work to ensure less food is wasted, and that more surplus can be diverted to feed bellies not bins. The network grew out of the city’s emergency food response in the pandemic, and has continued to work, and campaign together, to make sure everyone has access to food.

With your help we can make sure that Brum Bites Back at food injustice, and that the whole city can eat well this winter.
