To confirm, we're still running and will remain open for as long as possible. I'm sure everyone's aware of the latest, stricter rules for leaving the house and social distancing, so at Foodshed we have responded with even further changes to our set-up. If you're coming to a drop-in, then please don't arrive early - we don't want unnecessary queues forming. We will be putting measures in place to ensure that the 2 meter rule is adhered to whilst waiting for your food parcel and would ask you to respect this. We'd encourage only 1 person per household to collect the food to minimise groups and maximise space. We're also running with a skeleton team, so won't be able to do the usual requests and extras that we'd normally do - we're only handing out pre-made food bags.
If you’re feeling unwell or are self-isolating and still need our support, then we’d ask that you’d send someone else on your behalf. If you aren’t able to do so, then please get in contact with us either via the website or calling us and leaving a message. We're doing our best to get back to everyone as soon as possible, but please bear with us.
Any services/ charities/ other organisations that we work with, please do keep in contact with us so that we can provide much needed food to all those vulnerable in the community. We’re so grateful to everyone who’s donating, we have enough in our stores to support the community for the time being, so let’s just try to keep this going so that we reach everyone in need!
We've seen some unbelievable kindness this week and are so encouraged by those in the community that are going above and beyond to help us... Thank you!
Any further updates will be posted to this page, and our Facebook page, so please check online first before calling!
