We advise all service users to follow all NHS and World Health Organisation guidance to stop the spread of the virus.
This allows the food bank to stay open and keep our volunteers safe.
We are not able to extend our deliveries during this time – please do not ask as this put immense pressure on our delivery driver.
Please be aware that we may have to close at very short notice due to government guidance and advice AND stay closed for the health and safety of our service users and volunteers.
We will notify service users via social media and our website should we need to close.
This is an emergency pandemic and we are taking this very seriously
Statement regarding Corona Virus & Loaves and Fishes & food parcels
The Corona Virus has caused an increased demand for goods across the sector.
We are struggling to receive food donations to provide complete food parcels for all service users.
From 16 March we will need to ration items in order to maintain stock.
We request that all service users adhere to our food parcel guidance: we will not exchange food, take special requests (unless you have dietary needs).
Please do not question our volunteers about food in your parcel as we have rationing in place.
This is a very challenging time and we appreciate your understanding and patience.
