We have seen such incredible generosity from so many individuals, community groups, local businesses and companies, including Tescos and Morrisons donating food during the Coronavirus pandemic. If you are considering supporting us this Harvest time, we wanted to ask if you could do that with finance rather than food, as we have sufficient stock to meet the needs of those in crisis for the next few months.
We are looking at replacing the small van which is starting to have recurring mechanical problems, so that we can continue to effectively transport food around Cardiff, picking up food from collection points and delivering it to our centres to support those in crisis. It would be great if we could purchase a hybrid or electric option replacement for our van helping us to be mindful of our environmental commitment.
Our vans are driven by a team of volunteers, collecting food donations from our partner supermarkets and other locations across Cardiff and delivering food to our client distribution centres throughout the week, so is an essential part of our operation.
We’ve created our Harvest Appeal to raise funds for this project. We’re looking to raise around £25,000 and we are asking businesses, churches, schools and individuals if they would be willing to support us with a financial donation this Harvest?
Would you consider supporting our Harvest Appeal via our Local Giving page?
You can select any of the donations amounts on the Local Giving page or enter an amount of your choice (£2 minimum).
Or please visit our website for other ways you can give financially to Cardiff Foodbank. https://cardiff.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate/
We would ask that any donation includes the words ‘ New Van’ so that we can designate the funds.
We believe that ‘Together we can make a difference for our city’.
Thank you for your support!
