Coronavirus has had a huge impact on our street outreach activities and we are having to seriously restrict and daily review our “soup run”.
In full lockdown we are unable to use St Mary’s Church.
We do everything we can to continue to collect and distribute sandwiches outdoors. Being outside automatically reduces the person to person infection risks. Generally guests come and go quite quickly. We will encourage this!
There are also issues around food supply as Pret a Manger at times have been closed and at others need to vary their opening hours, affecting when we can collect their surplus food.
Our current concerns lie around the potential contamination of the packaging of sandwiches.
