Smethwick Church Action Network (Smethwick CAN) aims to tackle all forms of poverty through a range of community activities, services, projects and campaigns that have been set up through local people working with local churches, faith groups and community organisations.Why the community needs us
Smethwick CAN was formed in July 2014 after local churches initially set up a foodbank in January 2012. Through the foodbank alone, a dedicated team of over 50 volunteers has provided more than 350,000 meals to over 5,000 people in the first 7 years of operations. We now provide Community Cafe, Allotment Project, Places of Welcome and support for Social Enterprise and Cooperative start-ups.Our impact on the community
