Foodbank update - as at 17th March 2020

 

Due the Coronavirus crisis we are making some changes to our foodbank operation. Please read this message as it affects you and your clients.

 

  1. We are KEEPING OPEN four of our centres:

St Paul’s Church, Hills Road (Monday & Friday)

Church of the Good Shepherd Arbury (Thursday)

Cambourne Old Blue School (Thursday)

C3 Centre, Coldham’s Lane (Friday)

 

  1. We are CLOSING four centres:

Chesterton Methodist Church (CLOSED)

OLEM Catholic Church (CLOSED)

Alpha Terrace, Trumpington (CLOSED)

Waterbeach Baptist (CLOSED)

 

This will be in effect from MONDAY 23rd March. Please ensure that clients know about this when issuing vouchers as the address of all centres may be printed on the back of the voucher.

 

We expect additional demand during the coming months. We will continue to provide food for those in financial hardship but if people have enough money and are self-isolating we cannot provide food. Our resources will not stretch that far.

 

Our procedures at the centres will be changed to minimise personal contact. This means we will be unable to offer the usual hospitality (tea, coffee etc.). Please explain this to clients and that the changes are intended to enable us to provide our service throughout the coming weeks and months. There is no need to come at the beginning of the sessions or to worry about us running out.

 

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

 

Many thanks

 

The Foodbank team
