Our mission is to feed those in need and not to leave anyone without food who is struggling to meet the basic nutritional needs of themselves or family members. We have not turned anyone away that has no local food bank. To those whom we have identified a local food bank, we have given them details so they can access food from there.
We serve the communities of Pembrey and Burry Port, St Ishmaels, Kidwelly, Trimsaran, Carway, Pontyates, Ponthenri, Five Roads, and Pwll.
Referrals are currently received in three ways. An individual can self-refer, or a family member or via an approved organization can refer.
Organisations become approved by contacting the food bank and then receiving their own identification number alongside the link to the online application form. The form automatically uploads onto Foodbank data and we are notified via email that an order has come through. This gives us the ability to track client numbers per organisation.
Since March 2020 we have helped feed over 2500 people and their pets.
