What we are doing to reduce the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19)
During the strange times we recently found ourselves in, what became clear was a great willingness from local people to help out in any way they can.
A total of 319 local residents volunteered to help with the Covid-19 response of which, 73 people helped support 1,886 households, feeding 4,099 people with 6,157 packages of food supplied by Foodbank stock and 190 local residents who regularly donated to us.
The Foodbank has now been open since the 14th September. We are continuing to monitor and direct requests submitted through the Covid-19 website, phone calls and text messages and are in a position to refer to The Foodbank should any resident still require support. So please feel free to share this information with anyone you feel may require further assistance.
If you need support, whether it's simply advice or a friendly chat, please let us know by completing the request form below:
Thank you to everyone who has offered to be involved in supporting others in our community during this challenging time and for your commitment to support local residents and communities. Thank you to all the volunteers who especially supported with food donations and deliveries.
