First Grangetown foodbank opens

16 September 2016

Grangetown has got its first foodbank, with the service opening its doors at the Grangetown Baptist Church on Friday.

This is the seventh in the city to be run by Cardiff Foodbank, whose chair of trustees Councillor Eleanor Sanders said they were “very pleased to be working in partnership” with the church.

It opened its doors on Friday 16th September for people needing emergency food (with the presentation of a voucher).  The foodbank will then open weekly, every Friday between 11am and 1pm.

But for those wishing to help, please don’t bring donations of food to the church! People wishing to donate food are advised to read the website for the latest list of items they need – and also for collection points, which include both Asda stores in the Grangetown area.

The foodbank will be formally launched on September 30th. This will be the first south of the city, with the nearest one currently based at City Temple on Thursdays in Cowbridge Road East on the Riverside/Canton border.
