DEFRA: Referring vulnerable people for food deliveries

DEFRA has launched a system which allows vulnerable people to be referred for reserved food delivery slots with Tesco or Iceland.

It says that the referrers can be local authorities and a small number of charities.

They are rolling this out across 35 local authorities this week, and the rest over the following 2-3 weeks.

The form for local authorities to register an interest in the scheme can be found at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSek7JG_9m7pjr0FDXyFnc2PVdCzPX-JCLjr5fKcmw7k73sqwA/viewform

DEFRA also has a live document listing the alternative grocery delivery services available which is being regularly updated which can be found at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SIpvvfywO2m3gKOutCL4BJoVw6bxyF0S/view.
