|We will achieve this by delivering food to people’s door – every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1pm, while observing government guidelines on safe social distancing.
Thanks to funding through Action together, Crisis and a large food donation from Rochdale Council we feel well placed to rise to the challenges of Covid 19.
Special thanks to the Bond board too, who have kindly donated their van to this effort.
Yesterday (Monday 6th April) our 6-volunteer delivered 77 food parcels to vulnerable people across the borough of Rochdale. At this rate we believe we will achieve over 250 food parcels this week alone.
