Wyndham Street Pantry has been set up to help local residents to get great
quality food at a brilliant price! We were already planning to start a
pantry at SRCDC this year because we’ve seen first hand what a difference
it has made in other parts of the city but we decided to speed up our opening
to respond to the Covid-19 crisis.
As a community anchor organisation we wanted to set up something that
would make a real difference to people in our local community on a day to day
basis. Before the crisis, the cost of living had never been higher, now we face
a community where many of our most vulnerable are even more isolated, where
family members may have suddenly lost some or most of the income and where
people are having to provide additional food costs to fill the gaps of
up the Wyndham Street Pantry because despite these struggles we think everyone
should be able to access a wide selection of healthy, exciting food!
For people thinking about ordering from the Wyndham Street Pantry, we charge
£2.50 per package and for that you get over £15 worth of shopping (3 full
bags). We get our food from Fareshare Cymru who provide us with fresh fruit and
Vegetables, tinned good, dried goods such as cereals, crisps and rice, dairy
products, Meat, Vegetarian dishes and desserts.We don’t know exactly what we’ll
get each week but we know it will be high quality, a great selection and you
will be able to plan A LOT of meals form it.
In our first 2 weeks we have sent 73 deliveries out to local residents and we are happy to say we have had great feedback, Ms E, a single Mum currently self-isolating said, “Little one and I received our first order and we’re overwhelmed! Incredible! thank you so so much, this is so incredibly useful to us!” Another Pantry customer reported back ” We are over the moon with the food, we will get so many meals out of this food, we really do appreciate it.”
would like to thank FoodCardiff, the Martin Lewis Fund, Cardiff Council as well
as the Helping Working Families Fund from The National Lottery for helping us
set the Pantry up and The local Probation Team, Oasis, Women Connect First and
Horn Development Association and ACE for providing staff to help us run so
smoothly! A great community effort to help people struggling to access food for
themselves or their family.
