Helping a local charity deliver food parcels across the County

Helping a local charity deliver food parcels across the County.

Working closely with referral agencies, PATCH (Pembrokeshire Action to Combat Hardship) has been giving food parcels, clothing and household items to people facing financial crisis since 2008.

PATCH has now been able to purchase a much-needed van to help volunteers deliver the food parcels, thanks to donations from the South Hook LNG Community Fund, in partnership with Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS) and other local organisations.

The spacious van means that surplus food can be picked up from a number of local supermarkets in one trip, rather than the multiple trips and pickups that was required before, saving time and money.

A food parcel provides food and drink for five days and includes fresh produce from supermarkets, which previously went into landfill.
