Derbyshire Voluntary Action

Food parcels provided to vulnerable households and individuals will stop from 1 August 2020.  

A number of alternative options are available if you are unable to shop for yourself.

If you are on the official shielding list, you can get access to a priority supermarket delivery slots offered by seven supermarkets. If you have already signed up for these supermarket deliveries they will continue beyond the end of July. If you have not already signed up you can still register as a vulnerable person to get coronavirus support before Friday 17 July 2020.

The NHS Volunteer Responders can pick up your shopping that you have paid for and deliver it to you. Tel: 0808 196 3646 between 8am and 8pm, 7 days a week to register. When you call, mention that you received information about NHS volunteer responders in your food box.

Many food retailers are also selling their own set food boxes or can deliver prepared meals for you. Other commercially available options include telephone ordering, food box delivery, prepared meal delivery and other non-supermarket food delivery providers. You can check online or try calling local stores to see what is available.

DCC Community Response Unit can also help if you have no friends and family to call on for support.
