The volunteers who work together to bring you Fareshares are currently discussing what we should do in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
On the one hand Fareshares provides good food and other essentials at affordable prices, and people depend on that. It’s not a luxury.
On the other hand there are many practical considerations and concerns which could make closing the shop the more responsible choice for us all.
Some of our volunteers have already said that reluctantly they have will have to stop working shifts for a variety of very good reasons.
Others, though, are keen to try to continue providing the service in one way or another, in the short term at least.
So to avoid a wasted journey please check back here for the latest position before you travel to Fareshares.
