COVID-19 update

21st March 2020

Please note that as a result of the COVID-19 we have some changes to our operation. Distribution Centres – We have lost two centres as Tilbury St John’s and Grays Methodist Church have closed. But the good news is that Socketts Heath Baptist Church have come forward and offered to open as a distribution centre on a Friday 3.30pm – 5pm, many thanks to them for stepping in. Shortages – we are ‘managing’ our stocks as best we can but realise we will be down as churches and groups won’t be meeting. You can still donate food at many of the locals shops and Supermarkets – so please use these if you are able.
We ask for your prayers as we continue to try and offer our service to all who need us under these very difficult times.
As many of our volunteers fall into the “vulnerable” category and have had to self isolate we would much appreciate more help. If you are able to help please contact the foodbank via email at [email protected] – Thank you.
