COVID19 Help for people in financial crisis

31st March 2020

Foodbanks exist to help people who cannot afford to put food on the table. At times like this, we know that some people will be more financially vulnerable than ever.

If you or your clients are eligible for a food voucher, you can still exchange it for a food parcel in our Foodbanks. Keep up to date on opening hours etc here: https://durham.foodbank.org.uk/locations/
