Changes due to COVID-19

NEW WINTER OPENING TIMES!!! PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM SATURDAY 23rd JANUARY WE WILL BE OPENING FROM 10AM – 12.00PM

We all want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated this year. Some
people we have been able to thank personally, but there have been many more who
have donated anonymously, or from whom we didn’t take enough information to
send thanks.

This has been a difficult year for everyone. We have had several new local
volunteering groups who have risen to the challenges posed by the crisis. In addition
to their other efforts, they have been able to collect food from the Drop In to deliver
to those in need who were unable to leave home, for whatever reason. We have also
welcomed new service users who have sadly lost their jobs due to the pandemic, or
whose income has been severely curtailed, and this may increase in 2021.
Thanks to the generosity of so many lovely local people and businesses we have
been able to continue to supply food to all those who have needed the service
throughout the crisis.

We have also been able to offer warm clothing and bedding
during the winter months, and to provide an additional food parcel with extra
Christmas goodies for all.
None of this would be possible without the help of all those who donated food,
money, or time to our cause, and we are extremely grateful to you all.

In order to comply with government guidelines, we have had to make a few changes to the Todmorden Food Drop In

We are remaining open during our usual hours, however our cafe is closed and we are providing pre-packed food parcels to one person at a time. We also ask that those waiting for a food parcel practice social distancing and remain 2 meters apart at all times.

In order to provide the best service we can, we ask that during this time only the following items are donated, as these are the items we need the most in addition the items we already have stored
