Government Food Parcels: How to receive, cancel and donate

A number of houses in the Teign Valley are receiving food parcels. Here are a few guidelines:

I need to receive a food parcel

You need to register with the UK government. Follow the instructions here.

I’d like to cancel my food parcel as I don’t need it.

  • Go to https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable and register (or re-register even if you did this previously). You will need your NHS number.
  • When you get to the question ‘Do you have a way of getting essential supplies delivered at the moment?’ select ‘Yes’.
  • This will (eventually) stop the parcels but don’t worry – you won’t be removed from the supermarket delivery priority lists if you are on these.
  • As an extra step, leave a large, prominently displayed note out on Sunday night telling the driver not to leave any more boxes.

I’d like to donate my food parcel.
