Emergency Food Appeal

If you have already donated to the Cardiff Food Appeal, thank you so much!

Every penny is being spent on supporting people in need with emergency food & essentials throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

If you'd like to donate to the scheme visit:

As you will know the COVID-19 crisis is having a major impact right across Cardiff with many of our businesses and communities affected.

One particular challenge is the increasing demand for basic food supplies, particularly to support our most vulnerable people, either those required to self-isolate or those suffering from the economic impact of the crisis.

Donating to the food appeal is part of the wider Together for Cardiff campaign.

You can also find volunteering opportunities​​​​:

How we are contacting people who are shielding

Cardiff Council is calling people who are shielding from Coronavirus to offer help by delivering food parcels to them.

We are using a list supplied by Welsh Government and GPs. We will not ask you for any bank details nor will we ask you for any payment.

If you want delivery of a food parcel we will leave it outside your door for you to collect.
