Excess Food Boxes

Braintree Community Hub within Braintree District Council, has been receiving phone calls from residents who are extremely high risk and receiving food parcels from the Government. Some of these residents are now able to receive deliveries, either by home delivery from a supermarket or family and so the parcel is not needed. Unfortunately, at present, there doesn’t seem to be a way of stopping these parcels at source.   

If you have had a Government food parcel delivered to your home which you do not need, the food bank would be very grateful to receive them as they can be re-distributed to those in need.

Please email community.transport@braintree.gov.uk or call 01376 557883 to arrange for your unwanted box to be collected from your home and taken to the food bank.

Thank you and take care.

Kind regards

Braintree Community Hub
