Brecon Foodbank will continue to open on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings for as long as we can. For the safety of our volunteers and clients, however, we are operating an ‘Appointments Only’ system and we will be observing ‘Social Distancing’ as outlined below.
If you need food, the best way is to be referred by email via a referral agency. If you are not working with one already, please see the ‘how to get help’ page on our website for our list of agencies. https://brecon.foodbank.org.uk/get-help/how-to-get-help/ They will email a voucher to us for you, then we will phone you when we open to discuss what you require and give you an appointment to collect your food. Please come at that time!
When you arrive, knock on the door you have been allocated (A or B) then step back 2metres (6 feet). A Foodbank volunteer will answer the door as soon as possible, confirm who you are and go to collect your food. Please stay 2m away from the door until the volunteer has placed your bags of food outside the door, gone in and shut the door.
PLEASE DO NOT COME WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT – YOU WILL NOT BE GIVEN FOOD IF YOU JUST TURN UP. You will have to phone the Foodbank on 01874 611723, option 2, but our phone will be very busy.
Food donations will also need an appointment, and we would ask you also to observe the social distancing procedures. Alternatively leave your donations at one of the collection points such as Brecon Co-op or the Spar; we are collecting from there regularly.
PLEASE DO NOT COME IF YOU, OR SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD, OR WITH WHOM YOU HAVE RECENTLY BEEN IN CONTACT, IS SHOWING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19; please send a representative instead. Please do not donate any items from households where someone may have the virus.
Thank you for your co-operation in this; it is for everyone’s safety. We do not want to have to close. More stories
