Coronavirus (COVID 19) Food Bank – Yorkshire
Welcome. We hope you and your family is fit and well.
With the terrible coronavirus (COVID-19) still taking hold in our community, it is more important than ever people stay at home as much as possible and try to avoid close contact with anyone they do not live with. However, the economic impact of the lock-down measures on families is having a detrimental effect on some people’s health and well-being in our community. Many people are not able to work and have lost livelihoods.
Yorkshire West Indian Culturama Carnival Network have taken a pro-active approach to tackling this problem. Throughout the pandemic our team has been raising funds to purchase and deliver food to the most vulnerable people in the Yorkshire area throughout the Coronavirus lock-down. This service has been an essential lifeline for many, particularly the elderly and those who visited our street kitchen – which we can not run at the moment due to the lock-down restrictions.
If any local shops, such as grocery stores, would like to donate food in support, please do not visit the Caribbean takeaway in Lockwood, please make arrangements using the telephone or email contact details below. Please do not visit the business premises because of Covid 19.
