Service And Help To The Foodbank


--by Helenconnell2, posted Jul 2, 2022
Before my operation I had to isolate and couldn't do my normal grocery shopping. Of course, I've not been able to do any shopping since the operation.

Before the operation, we placed an online order from our normal supermarket and we've continued at regular intervals. When I was placing the order for today, I put a couple of items in for the foodbank. This morning I received an email that they had to send a replacement for one of the items on the order. We discussed it with the driver and he said we could keep them and he would knock them off because they usually destroyed anything returned. I thanked him and said I would put them in the foodbank!
