What to do if you need food

  1. Have you asked your friends, neighbours, relatives who can get out of the house to buy you food?
  2. Are you able to afford food but are in isolation and have no one who can bring it over, or are you waiting too long for deliveries?
    • Check out this document which lists all the food available to buy in County Durham areas. It includes lots of local producers, butchers and greengrocers who are delivering. Watch this space for all the info in map form…
