Food Parcel Offer
In addition, on Thursday and Friday of this week, we have organised across the Council area, food parcel collection points for parents and/carers that as is an alternative to the above and for where a voucher may not be their preferred option. All parents/carers will need to do, is turn up at the collection point and they will be given a food parcel containing various products. South Gloucestershire have worked tirelessly in conjunction with ELS and our Transport department with support from Local schools to get an offer in place. All collection points across South Gloucestershire will be open from 11am-1pm on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th October. The food parcels contain dried goods only and non-perishables.
The collection points are listed below . If parents and carers, go to the front entrance, they will be directed to the collection point as appropriate. We have tried to cover the whole geography of South Gloucestershire so that we meet the needs of as many families as possible, so please see a list of schools.
