Advice NI and the Department For Communities have a support pathway mapped out for those who need help to get food. This pathway is valid until 23 September 2020.
The Covid-19 Community Helpline is 0808 802 0020.
Support to help you get access to food may include one or more of 4 options, depending on your needs:
- Benefits and debt advice, along with a referral to the nearest free foodbank;
- Information on online shopping options with the big supermarkets, like Tesco, Sainsbury, Asda and Iceland;
- Local deliveries from smaller convenience shops, like Spar, Vivo, SuperValu, Centra and Mace;
- Try to match you with a volunteer to shop for you.
