Provision of emergency food parcels to those in receipt of a voucher supplied by over 50 local agencies from public and voluntary sector. The food back is no longer open to the public on a Wednesday, except for people dropping off donations. We will be offering parcels at the door for those with vouchers. We will ask clients to observe the 2 metres/3 paces rule about social distancing and not to gather in groups to talk. Would clients to send one member of the family/couple if at all possible to collect food. We are encouraging enquirers with questions about vouchers to visit the Sandwell Council Local Welfare Provision to make an online application for a food voucher (if successful the voucher number will be sent by text) and can be presented at foodbank.
