Reminders – post lock down

As lock down and shielding restrictions have lifted for on 31 July in Scotland, a reminder that we have not changed our safety and health guidance at the food bank.

1- Hours have remained the same and we advise not to come outside of these hours to donate food as we are protecting our service users and volunteers.

2- We no longer have a drop in service. All service users, self-referrals, agency referrals will need to arrange an appointment to collect food parcels. This is to ensure safe social distancing and overcrowding at the food bank. Contact us here.

3- Delivery service has been greatly reduced due to volunteers being called back from furlough. Those on deliveries prior to 31 July, will need to contact us to make further arrangements for an appointment for food parcels.

NOTE: We are not refusing food to anyone who received deliveries prior to 31 July.  We are asking services users to contact us for further advice and support.

4- We strongly urge visitors, donors, delivery drivers, and those coming to the food bank to follow ALL government guidance on 2 meter social distancing, wearing a face covering at all times, and practice good hand hygiene (wash your hands, use hand sanitizer).

If you are displaying any symptoms of the virus, do not come to the food bank, and follow all guidance set out by NHS Scotland.
