Jewellery Quarter Food Hub

How it works…

The global Slow Food movement is working to reconnect people to where their food comes from and inspire an active interest in local food production. Slow Food Birmingham volunteers bring farm to fork by enabling you shop from the best local, seasonal produce.

You can browse a number of local producers and food businesses on our website, many of which are based in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands, add the items you’d like to order to the basket and checkout as you would with any online store. Collections are every other Thursday from 7:00pm-7:30pm at 1000 Trades, and orders on a collection week should be placed by midnight on Monday to be available that Thursday. Please be sure to bring a bag with you to collect your items to minimise waste.

The team champion local food and aim to better connect people with the food they eat through local food projects, educational events, and shared meals. By shopping with Slow Food you can contribute to these initiatives.

Much of what we eat arrives at our table as the result of the wasteful and carbon intensive global supply chains that major supermarkets operate. Slow Food offers a tastier and more sustainable alternative that supports the local economy and is kinder to the planet as well as working closely with groups who redistribute surplus food in the city so that everyone can have access to fresh, healthy and good quality food.

It is the team’s ambition to grow awareness of the movement and create hubs across the city, providing alternatives to the big supermarkets that dominate the high street. If you’d like to be involved – we’re a friendly and jovial bunch – please get in touch.
