Qadria trust is proud to announce its new foodbank project. This will run side-by-side with our already established, weekly ‘Hot Food For The Needy’ project.
For the foodbank project we will be working with Sparkhill Foodbank, which is part of the Trussell Trust (an organisation with the noble aim of ending food poverty in the UK). The way this will work is that food and toiletries donated to Qadria Trust will be transported to Sparkhill Foodbank for them to distribute alongside the items they receive from many other sources, including other Mosques and Churches, personal donations, supermarkets, businesses, etc.
Qadria Trust is doing this to provide you, as a member of our congregation, the means of helping the poor and needy in our community, irrespective of race or religion. Foodbanks provide essential help, not only to the homeless, but many people struggling to make ends meet and suffering in silence, unbeknownst even to their neighbours.
Please adhere to the below list regarding donations. This list has been provided to us by Sparkhill foodback, and is updated regularly by them to reflect the items they need, and what they do not require because they already have a surplus.
