Ballymoney Foodbank thanks ‘dedicated volunteers’

Ballymoney Foodbank has thanked its dedicated volunteers who given the current COVID-19 situation are extremely busy.

Reliant on food donations, the Foodbank have experienced shortages on certain items due to the growing demand on food shops and panic buying, yet demand for the Foodbank services has increased.

“Please note that due to Social Distancing rules we ask that all our clients, on arrival at Foodbank, remain in their cars and we will approach you, take your voucher and then bring your food out to your car. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER OUR BUILDING.

“We at Foodbank will continue to supply the people of Ballymoney throughout this crisis and are happy to report that donations can once again be left in the collection box at Tesco. Donations can also still be left in CAN CAN.

“Many thanks for your continued support.”
