Service as Normal
Foodshare will continue to provide food during lockdown as before.
We have procedures to ensure the foodbank stays safe for people collecting food. Please follow all instructions to ensure you and everyone else can pick up food safely.
We are arranging to make deliveries to everyone who is shielding. Your referrer can request deliveries for you where you or someone in your house are shielding. Your voucher also includes details of how you can arrange for your voucher to be delivered in an emergency.
Please continue to donate food. We are entirely dependent on donations. The lockdown rules allow you to continue to donate food at the drop-off points listed below as before. Food donors who are isolating can make monetary donations during lockdown if they prefer.
Referrers can request deliveries. Just follow the instructions when issuing a voucher.
Volunteers are permitted under the lockdown rules to carry on as before other than volunteers who are shielding who must stay home.
Foodshare is a Registered Charity with a simple charitable objective: to help people in and around Maidenhead who are, for whatever reason, unable to feed themselves and their families properly.
Our primary focus is on providing nutritious food, including fresh food, fruit & vegetables. We aim to provide a minimum of 3 days of food, more if we have the stock. We accommodate as far as we can particular dietary requirements (for example, vegetarian, gluten-free, Halal etc).
