Commercial Food Offers

We have been working to capture the available commercial food offers in one document. We hope that this will be a helpful resource for local authorities and charities to assist in signposting vulnerable people who are having difficulty accessing food. The options include food boxes, food delivery, telephone ordering, wholesale offers and ready meal solutions. Whilst not exhaustive, it demonstrates good country-wide and regional coverage.

We have now stored this via an electronic link and will update it regularly:
