The Cardiff Foodbank helps and supports those suffering financial hardship, who are unable to feed themselves or their families.

"The Cardiff Foodbank is a great initiative, offering practical help to those experiencing financial hardship. I have been a strong supporter of the project since it first started in Cardiff and am pleased to see it expanding with the opening of the 4th centre today. The Foodbank is a real benefit to my constituents and I would encourage everyone to donate to it if they are able to, on one of the food collection days which are held across Cardiff."
