Foodbank Corona Virus Guidelines
Changes to our Foodbank Services
Anyone who is in food poverty and needs help can ask for a foodbank voucher from an agency that they are working with and bring it to one of our centres to exchange for a food parcel.
Please be aware that we do NOT do deliveries (it was only during Covid lock-down when people volunteered to help while not working).
For safety reasons, our centres will be operating with a minimum number of volunteers and are only able to offer a basic service at this time. We would ask that only one person attend to collect a food parcel and to please wear a mask.
Please remember: You must not attend a foodbank if you have any symptoms of Coronavirus and are asked to respect Social Distancing guidelines at all times and please wear a mask.
