About this map
We've designed this map to help anyone looking for food provision services in their local area. The businesses included in it include food producers, restaurants, takeaways, farm shops, caterers and food delivery services. The businesses included have highlighted that they're offering some assistance during the Covid19 lockdown period to help provide food in their local areas, eg food delivery or food pick up.

The map data shown above is displayed as point data. Please note that this will not reflect the geographical scope of each of the services shown. Due to the number of services included and the distinct nature of each geographical area covered, it has not been possible to display detailed information about scope of coverage for each service. Please use the contact details provided to find out more.
Help accessing food
An emergency Food Hub was set up by Shropshire Council in March 2020 for food parcels to be delivered to residents on the government’s shielded list until the national delivery scheme announced by the Government could begin. Although national deliveries are now being made, the Food Hub is continuing to deliver top up supplies to the most vulnerable who are unable to make their own arrangements, including those with special dietary requirements. The Food Hub and Community Reassurance Team has not replaced Shropshire’s food banks but may deliver food parcels for people who are financially impacted by coronavirus, unable to go out and where food banks are not able to deliver. If you need support or know someone else who does, call Shropshire Council’s dedicated helpline: 0345 678 9028 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you, or someone you are supporting, is on a low budget, wants to save money, or needs help accessing free or low-cost food, you can find out more from The Shropshire Larder. The Shropshire Larder has been created by the Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance. It is an online resource packed with valuable information and based on the aim to ensure everyone in Shropshire has access to healthy and affordable food.
