2020 bought many challenges with the global pandemic, lockdowns and an increasing demand for our services. Nevertheless, it was a huge year for us and we really went above and beyond to support vulnerable people in the community. We have worked in close partnership with local organisations and created new ways to get food to those in need. This included implementing an emergency response in North and West Wales. 

Using every inch of our Cardiff warehouse and our incredible team of volunteers we have signed up more new members than ever before, increased the tonnes of surplus food saved from going to waste, seen a rise in the number of meals provided and supported our highest number of vulnerable people in communities to date.  

The stats (2020): 

655 tonnes

of food redistributed that would have otherwise gone to waste preventing 1,600 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted by diverting the food from landfill

2.3 million

Meals provided with surplus food to support vulnerable people in the community

167

12,585

We started lots of new deliveries in 2020-21 to meet the increased need due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. This included 2 new deliveries to Neath Port Talbot, 2 additional deliveries to Swansea, a new delivery to Blaenau Gwent and an additional delivery to each of Bridgend, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil and Torfaen. As well as this we now offer collection slots from our warehouse Monday – Saturday
