During the first Coronavirus lockdown in March 2020, Frome Town Council set up an emergency food parcel delivery service. The service was aimed at those with no support system and designed specifically for those residents of Frome who are running low on supplies and unable to visit the shops for basic necessities. The service ran Monday to Friday, with a team of volunteers packing and delivering to those in need.
The parcels contained basic, non-branded essentials – a variety of tinned goods, long life milk, pasta, rice, tea, coffee, cereal, two toilet rolls and soap – £20.
Payment for the parcels was payable by card either over the phone or via contactless payment at the door. The parcels were packed and delivered safely, following strict guidelines and social distancing. Read about these guidelines on our Volunteer page.
