Changes to foodbank service
Posted on: Tuesday 24 March 2020
Bridgend foodbank are changing how they run their service following advice from Welsh Government and Public Health Wales to help slow the spread of coronavirus.
Foodbanks in the Bridgend County Borough will now be issuing e-referral codes rather than food bank vouchers to ensure there is no face-to-face contact.
Until further notice clients must wait outside the food bank centre whilst volunteers bring pre-packed food parcels to them.
These measures have been put in place for the safety and well being of clients and volunteers. No items will be swapped and no snacks and drinks will be served at the centre.
The food banks at Bettws, Cymmer, Caerau and Ogmore Valley are temporarily closed.
Follow Bridgend Foodbank on Twitter @BEndFoodBank or on Facebook BridgendFoodbank to stay up to date with opening times.
For general enquiries, please contact Bridgend County Borough Council's customer contact centre:
09:00 to 17:00 Monday to Thursday;
09:00 to 16:30 Friday.
