Coronovirus and food deliveries

Morrisons are apparently offering a 'Basic Food Parcel' that can be ordered by phone - weird huh, in these online shopping times? What if enough people in Bristol urged the supermarkets - and for that matter independents too - to follow suit? Vulnerable or less moble people could phone for some basics and volunteers could pick up. Two hits: social cohesion/contact between age groups and neighbours. Sustainable movement around city/reduced volumes of travel. Added bonus: community spirit and feelgood factor boost.

Hi, such a great idea! I am also willing to help with this, whether it's packing up food parcels or delivering them to the local community. Zoe.

Due to panic buying, a lot of our precious NHS staff are struggling to shop for food and essentials. I had an idea about setting up a food/essentials bank for them but not sure how could be set up, where? Etc. Hoping for some advice and help on here. Thanks Kim

Definitely worth organising - maybe needs local gov to take charge? I would gladly volunteer for this...
