Cambridge Local Assistance Scheme (CLAS), funded by Cambridgeshire County Council, can also support residents in crisis by providing a CLAS award. This could be in the form of an electronic supermarket voucher. Residents can call, email or text for support.
We have a limited number of priority online food delivery slots from Tesco and Iceland. These are prioritised to people who cannot go food shopping due Covid-19 related reasons. To apply please complete our separate online form for priority food delivery.
There are many food options available where you do not have to leave your home. Please see the below summary of food options available for order online and via telephone. These are food box deliveries, prepared meal deliveries or recipe boxes.
This summary has been compiled by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) based on publicly available information as at 29 April 2020. The list of suppliers is not exhaustive and completeness of offer or product availability cannot be guaranteed. Inclusion on this list is not a recommendation but we hope it will give residents some useful ideas.
