Government Shielding food parcels

A number of residents will have already received a letter that explains that they must stay at home for twelve weeks due to their underlying health issues. There has been some confusion as many people thought they would automatically receive a food parcel. This is not the case, anyone that meets the criteria must go online and make a request - shielding measures. Some people may have not received a letter, so please encourage them to register.

We have received today the list of those who have registered and we are contacting them directly to find out what their current situation is and whether they need an emergency food parcel delivered to them over the next few days. We are not aware of anyone across B&NES that has received one of these Government food parcels as yet.
