Do something different for Lent in 2022 – join in Black Country Foodbank’s 80 Can Challenge!
Foodbanks are facing more pressure as energy costs soar, food prices increase and many face financial worries. We hope to be able to support people through these difficult times and can only do that with the incredible support we receive from our donors. Please join our 80 Can Challenge!
Lent lasts 40 days and 40 nights so we challenge as many of you as possible to collect and donate 80 cans/packets of food to Black Country Foodbank.
