Due to the current health emergency, we are having to scale back our services. This is a worrying time for our members, customers, and staff and we will do our utmost to be able to resume a full service once the crisis subsides. We are going to be working with other providers to provide food and prepared meals to vulnerable and isolated members of the community. This crisis may well threaten the sustainability of Pulp Friction, however, we will be working hard to keep going!
